Visualizing NeuronsInstallation Art
In the summer of 2014, I was accepted to partake in an art residency at Grin City in Iowa. It brought together artists and scientists that worked together to create science education projects that were exhibited at the Science Center of Iowa and the Des Moines Social Club. I collaborated on the Biometric Suit and the Visualizing Neurons projects.
Visualizing Neurons was an artistic exploration of how neurons fire in the brain, specifically the process of long term potentiation that goes on in the learning process. It consisted of a projection mapped animation of the neurons accompanied by a fiber optic and glass etched sculpture of neuron in the brain.
