Brain Art

SENSE, 2001-03

'This sequence of sculptures illustrates the activity patterns of the human brain as it responds to the five senses: sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste. Scans of a subject's brain using each of the senses were produced with functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). These scans were then converted into three-dimensional physical structures of amber resin using a rapid-prototyping process'
