Knowledge as a Trophy
porcelain brain vase installation as part of THE INSTITUTE FOR COGNITIVE PROSPERITY (2020)
The brain of the artist was scanned and the reconstructed within a scientific visualisation programme. The reconstructed MRI brain data was then used to develop a set of brain vases and brain lamps, taking the common metaphor of the brain as a vessel or container, as well as brain activity as something that is lightening up literately. The glazed lettering on the objects is the original file name, displaying the various steps of the data processing.2020
