Painting with Brain Waves

The City Gallery exhibit called The Algorithmic Impulse closed about a week ago which meant it was time for me to go and pick up my artwork that I had created as part of it.

Back in January I went to the City Gallery and donned an EEG headset and sat at a desk writing Chinese characters while Simon Ingram’s Monadic Device drew a picture from the output of my brain waves.

Here is the finished product:

This is a page from my notebook I was working on that day:

Not exactly any resemblance but the long stroke and small dots which for the bottom part of 意 (yì) and 思 (sī) do remind me of some of the long curving strokes and little dots throughout the work that the machine created.

Now what I am going to do with this thing? For now it is sitting on top of the piano in the hallway.
