THE HIDDEN RESPONSE
WE ARE DISABLED BUT WE WILL LET YOU enter IF YOU ARE NOT.
I know how tough it can be, so I have attempted to make this as accessible as possible. Should you need any help please get in touch and someone on our team will be sure to help.
This is very Experimental. We have the journey planned however we don’t know the destination.
We would like to use art to examine the brain and examine the brain using the arts and technology.
We are examining how your brain reacts to art both inside and outside a gallery environment. This gives those the opportunity to explore no matter the circumstances.
VISITORS and ARTISTS
The idea for the exhibition is to first collect data from visitors to the gallery that you’ll be showing your work, in using the electroencephalogram (EEG). Which is something much like a bike helmet.
The opportunities are this.
We Call out to artists to create. Then those artists exhibit and we will explore both hidden responses.
So that we can examine how you responded to our project so that we can look at your conscious response to our Hidden Response. Then monitor the visitors unconscious Hidden Response.
Can you create a piece of work that might stimulate a certain part of the brain? How? Where will you start? Everyone is welcome initial stages are free and spaces are available for any artists, any style, any age, any level.
Would your gallery be interested in offering booked exhibition holders the opportunity to see how their work is experienced by the viewer of their work? With a possible collaborative aspect.
Looking at art from a disability perspective and an art historical prospective the benefits of the acts of creation
