BrainMirror is an interactive experience where the image of the visitors brain appears mixed with his/her mirror image, using natural head movement as an interface to explore volumetric visuals of the human brain.
This Reminds me little bit of the dream recorders in Wim Wender’s underrated ‘Until the end of the world’. In the film, a machine is created that records visual information from one person and reconstructs it in the brains of others – granting the power of sight to the blind for one thing, but even more mystically, enabling a person’s dreams to be recorded.
I suppose we are steps away from doing visualizations that go beyond pure volumetrics of the brain but actually map the shapes of thoughts themselves. Time for some fresh air and then a cup of tea I think.
