Floor talk with the artists, Astrid Visser and Alexia George, supported by Psychology-Neurocience and Ortho-Bionomy specialist Tiffany Beese.

Informed by research into neuroscience, artists Astrid Visser and Alexia George delve into the workings of the mind, examining the Cartesian idea that the mind and body are distinct substances.

Is the brain a super computer? Or is there more to the grey matter that makes us human? Experience the brain on a macro scale through sculptural light forms made from fibre optic cable, and wearables made from computer components alongside moving image.
