Interactive Brain Light Project By Laura Jade
Artist Laura Jade’s Brain Light Project (2015) integrates biology and illumination design into an interactive, sculpture cut from perspex, and engraved with dendrites.
Collaborating with neuroscientist Peter Simpson-Young and programmer Sam Gentle, the brain sculpture lights up in response to changing brain activity transmitted from an EEG (electroencephalography) wireless headset.
The Brain Light Project is Laura’s major work for her Masters of Illumination Design at the University of Technology, Sydney and has been created during a CULTURE AT WORK 2015 art + science residency program.
