Brainstorming is a series of collaborative works with professor and neuroscientist Mark Cohen, who created and co-directs the UCLA/Semel NeuroImaging Training Program. Together we are exploring the possibilities of brain to brain communication. For me, these are part of a larger area of research into the physical associates of mental processes such as emotions and feelings. It was first presented at the Beall gallery of Art + Technology at UC Irvine as part of the retrospective exhibition of a decade of collaboration with nanoscientist James Gimzewski. It has evolved since to include the idea of embodied intelligence in the form of an octopus crown worn by participants. Recently we received the UCLA Transdiciplinary grant which is helping us realize this project fully.
