The human brain contains many regions that are specialized for processing specific decisions and sensory inputs. Many of these are shared with our fellow mammals (and, in some cases, all vertebrates), suggesting that they are evolutionarily ancient specializations. But innovations like writing have only been around for a few thousand years, a time span that's too short relative to human generations to allow for this sort of large evolutionary change. In the absence of specialized capabilities, how has it become possible for such large portions of the population to become literate?
What do natural magnetic fields look like? This extraordinary footage from NASA’s Space Sciences Laboratory (UC Berkeley) gives you a glimpse and reveals their “chaotic, ever-changing geometries.” In terms of wow factor, it’s right up there with the Geometry of Sound.
After Thought is a personality test where I interview people using flashcards and brainwave analysis to produce a custom “video mindprint”. From software-response analysis, I generate a unique 5-minute video containing symbolic imagery such as fireworks shooting into the night sky, rain beating against a window, a sleeping baby and many more. The end result is a looping video on a small LCD screen, housed in a small wooden box. People should watch their video when they drift away from their true selves to perform an emotional realignment.
Julia Reodica currently resides in the United States. She is an art/science educator, a practicing artist, and a Registered Nurse in the critical care setting. Her on-going work includes traditional art practices and the use of laboratory tools or biotechnology. The art work is intended to express social commentary and encourage public inquiry. Living art work addresses issues of sustained life in novel environments. Science-related work based on utilizing living systems for exhibition was developed through work in art/science museums and institutions in the U.S. and internationally. In various publications and symposiums, her views on innovative mammalian tissue sculpting and the social impact of scientific research have raised new ethical and aesthetic questions about the new "body" of art.
