Currently, Dr. Barnes teaches in the Department of Psychology at UBC (metaplasticity.com), and helps direct a peer-run support group for individuals experiencing mental health issues (the-kaleidoscope.com). Dr. Barnes is also an active artist: He did a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Interactive Arts and New Media at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University.
