B R A I N L I G H T

B R A I N L I G H T  2015 integrates biology and illumination design into an interactive, sculpture cut from perspex and engraved with neural networks. 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.

B R A I N L I G H T  was Laura’s major research project for her Masters of Illumination Design at the University of Technology, Sydney and was created during a CULTURE AT WORK 2015 art + science residency program.
