Brain Waves @ The Barbican: In Pics
March 6, 2013 by Zoe
We were delighted to be part of Brain Waves, a Weekender at The Barbican, where art and neuroscience put their heads together for an array of creative events intended to – perhaps just a little bit – blow your mind.
We brought three off-the-wall events exploring the nature of the most complex object in the universe…
First up, the audience was invited to explore and share their memories in our Memory Clinic, an installation created with artist Evy Jokhova. From there, many of our guests took a guided tour to explore the capacity of their own ability to store information, a Memory Walk with grand master of memory Ed Cooke…
For those who had an appetite for something more gustatory: a Jelly Brain Dissection. We served up plate after plate of pannacotta, moulded into the form of your delicious cerebrum.
And, for a tasty treat for the ears, we devised an auditory guide to the mind: The Sonic Tour of the Brain.
You can download, listen to, and (we hope) enjoy the auditory tour of the mind here, where you can learn more about the science, the recordings, and the music.
