A Convergence Arts Event
Design: Alexa Piotte
Basic to all human thought, emotions, and behaviour is the constant communication between the many neurons within the brain. This constant interaction between neurons, that we will venture to call brainwaves, is what helps individuals formulate ideas. Artists may then materialize these ideas into art.
With this beautiful and complex system behind creativity in mind, "Brainwaves" was a two-part Convergence Arts Event, that allowed neuroscience trainees to be immersed into some of the processes through which artists transform their thoughts into concrete work of art, being object or performance. The evening started with a private tour of Concordia's Fine Arts facilities led by and offered to Convergence members; Concordia art students brought McGill neuroscientists in different studio spaces to experience various artistic activities generating new perspectives about art making.
