This project was a collaboration with Tomás Ossandón (cognitive neurosciences) in which an interdisciplinary dialogue gave origin to this interactive installation that explores brain activity in a resting state. How can we visualize the default mode network? How is brain activity represented? What is the difference between the resting state and the attention state? How can we design the relationship between these mental states in an exhibition space? And how can we experience this visually and sonically?

The proposal creates a visual and auditory environment based on data recorded from an MRI scan of a person in a resting state. In this way, the Sala Anilla at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Santiago, Chile) becomes a brain, which, thanks to 3D visualization, data sonification, and sensors, allows us to understand the brain states of a human experience that everyone undergoes without being aware of it.
