Brain Waves @ The Barbican
We are delighted to be part of Brain Waves, an upcoming Weekender at The Barbican, where art and neuroscience will put their heads together this March for an array of creative events that are sure to blow your mind.
Join us as we bring three interactive events exploring the nature of the most complex object in the universe…
What does the brain sound like? Join us and our giant brain as we take you through a range of recordings – from firing neurons to hissing hair cells and singing cortices – and discover how much we can learn about the brain just by listening to it. You can download the track and learn more about how it was made here.
Jelly Brain Dissection
Come dissect, discuss and digest the most complex thing in the known universe: jelly, set in the shape of your marvellous cortex. Explore the evolutionary history of the brain as we serve up a range of delectable panna cotta models from across the animal kingdom.
You are your memories. Come explore and share them with memory experts, and leave a piece of you behind in our branching collection of test tube thoughts, designed by artist Evy Jokhova. Or join Grand Master of Memory Ed Cooke to learn how to remember everything you never thought you could.
