“Light Up Your Mind” is a 2 day workshop that focuses on neuroscience, technology, design.

Did you know you have over 100 billion neurons that produce your thoughts, memories and actions? But what exactly is a “brainwave”? And is your head really full of electricity? How does your brain behave when you’re calm or when you are solving a maths problem? During this workshop, we’re strapping on an electroencephalographic headset and watching our thoughts come to life. Using Brainlight, an interactive artwork you control with your mind, we’ll be exploring the exciting world of neuroscience, creativity, data visualisation and the mysterious world of your brain! Experience first hand how a non-invasive EEG (Electroencephalography) device works and then imagine other creative applications for bio-controlled devices in the future, eg. mind controlled wheelchairs. Let’s see how the future might look if the fields of art, design, science and technology collide in unexpected ways!

The workshop will be a series of creative brain exercises that will involve both drawing, sculpture and optical illusions to learn about the anatomy of the brain and its function as well as how we can trick it through various perception exercises.

The days will be interspersed with practical games and science experiments that show the theory of the brain as well as making the artworks. The kids will also get to wear the EEG headset and watch their thoughts come to life with a mini brainlight artwork

Students will return home with an anatomical brain sculpture, a neuron cell, and an optical illusion painting.

This is a 2 full days workshop.
