Me and My Brain
Location based VR Installation
Let your mind go live!
Our brain. A miracle of precision, networks, control centers, chaos, poetry, structure, sounds and colors. Our brain is the almighty tool of individual and collective narration. We offer the individual human being and a group of participants access to their own brain. Science and art go hand in hand to make it possible to enter the cathedral of my own soul with the latest technology. Based on scientific brain models - generated through supercomputing - as well as especially developed patterns of interaction, we experience a visual spectacle of our neuronal world.
We are in the universe of the beginning and the end. We interact with our brain. Or it interacts with us. Where does free will come from? Is the fictitious only fictional? Or is there no separation between reality and fiction in the brain?
After the personal experience of a stroke, we went on a path to discover the secrets of the brain and its incredible powers together with neurologists and artists. While art can draw insight from science; the poetic side of the brain also offers amazing insights to modern neuroscience. Together, we want to make it possible for everyone to leave the normal structures of narration in order to make the richness inherent in all of us stand out.
For the first time, people will wander in their brains in wonder, interact and experience the almighty power of their own narration. A unique, magical approach to the essence of man.
