The Brain in Lights
I am a neuroscience major with a penchant for visual art. I applied for space in the Old Stone Mill last summer to have a studio for producing works of “sci-art." I find exploring science through art can form a bridge between two disciplines often considered disparate. Visualizing complex concepts in art form makes them more accessible to wider audiences, which I think is one of the great challenges facing scientists. With advances in our knowledge coming more quickly every day, it is more important than ever to find ways to disseminate new information for the education of our society.
In this project I sought to portray the brain with the accuracy of a neuroscientist and the creative hand of an artist to show the beauty and complexity of our most complex organ.
