An enquiry into the relationship between the head as an artistic motif and the genetics of cognitive aging. The head, reminiscent of Brancusi’s Sleeping Muse, is pierced by genetic pegs, arranged in the manner of a game. Delegates at the conference move the pegs in an attempt to crack the code. The work was turned in oak by Steve Fearnley.
Morphogenic Constructions By Penelope Kay and Thomas Pratt
An interactive piece that investigates the relationship between two dimensional information and the multi dimensional issues of the real world. The transparent cubes have diagrams on their faces taken from papers relevant to neuroscience. Delegates can pick up the cubes and match the faces to create their own constructions.
Neuroscience - inspired By Gintare Bagacionkaite
I am a Neuroscience graduate who is an artist at heart. I find inspiration all around me – from textbooks to my own research. I love exploring new art techniques and fusing them with my neuroscience knowledge. The magic of connections in the brain fascinates me the most – from synapses to networks, from memories to habits and beyond. Just like us humans, these connections are versatile and beautiful and destined for different futures: some will degenerate, some will blossom but all will contribute to Your experience of this reality.
