Art & Brain

Art and Science are closely related through the fount of all inquiry and creativity: the human brain.  In the words of one of history’s greatest scientist, Albert Einstein, “All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree.”

This exhibition deals with discrepancies between sensory input and the deciphering of reality. It is a collaboration between artist Ayelet Carmi and Dr. Ayelet McKyton, a neuroscientist whose research explores the limitations of re-learning to see after experiencing blindness. Her initial study, which was conducted in Ethiopia in collaboration with Prof. Ehud Zohary’s laboratory, measured and monitored children’s sight following cataract surgery. Dr. McKyton’s current research project is under the auspices of Dr. Netta Levin’s laboratory at Hadassah. She studies adults with a congenital sight-loss condition who have undergone innovative treatments to fix retinal dysfunction.

Inside My Head - A Contemporary Self Portrait by Paula Crown

Beset by migraines since childhood, critically-acclaimed artist Paula Crown animated high-tech images of her internal landscape and projected them on concave screens. The piece is a self-portrait rendered from the inside out, an intimate view of her personal topology. The animation is accompanied by an audio track composed specifically for this piece, a musical interpretation of the activity of Crown’s brain.
