We are  proud to announce the new performance, New Eyes at Pulqueria Insurgentes in Mexico City on January 18, 8 pm (Free Entrance). The performance is the outcome of a research trip in Mexico, the US and Brazil by choreographer Carima Neusser, visual artist Per Huttner with music by composer Siri Jennefelt and with the participation of Pierre Lister.

The performance is a development of work shown in 2018 and includes newly composed music, choreography, slideshows, smells, tastings and videos. Inspiration is taken from from baroque churches, Mexican soap operas, research on bats, meetings with representatives of the Apache nation, street food modernist Brazilian literature and includes something called "baby creatures." The work is like the journey it describes: it that can not be understood rationally, but has to be experiences with all five senses – just as you cannot seize the magic of the night without allowing madness to enter your mind.

The artists synthesize an experience for the audience by extracting four moods or situations. Based on these, they create collages where different impression merge into new constellations. In each part, the artists start from impressions, feelings paradoxical and interconnected phenomena instead trying to recount what they experienced rationally.

The project is supported by the Swedish Arts Council.

The Electric Brain in Paris


We are proud to announce an exhibition by 1+1=3 in Paris. The exhibition will take place at Biblioteque Charcot at ICM, Hôpital Pitié Salpêtrière, July 2-5.
 
 
 


The Electric Brain
- An aesthetic itinerary of the Charcot Library, from pioneering discoveries of organic electric activity to Brainwave Music

For the occasion of the CuttingEEG conference, the art-science collective 1+1=3 has created a special exhibition at the Charcot Library in which you can explore the aesthetic qualities of early scientific research in electrical (brain) activity.

Books and illustrations are drawn from the personal library of the pioneer of neurology, Jean-Martin Charcot (1825-1893) with the invaluable help of Guillaume Delaunay and Chantal Lantin. Documentation, records and recordings will also provide a chronology of the history of brainwave music, leading up to the recent performances of 1+1=3 in which they use the EEGsynth to convert EEG to music in real-time. Be sure to enjoy this opportunity between talks and posters to engage your brain in a different way and explore the unique history of Hopital Pitié-Salpêtrière. The library staff will also be present to allow you to explore the mind of the giants on whose shoulders we stand.

2-5 July at Bibliothèque Charcot
Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle Epinière
Hopital Pitié-Salpêtrière

- More Eyes: A speculative event with neuroscience, visual art, music and dance.





OC Oswaldo de Andrade, March 10, 16.30-18.30 – presentations are in Portuguese and entry is free of charge.

Welcome to More Eyes!

OC Oswaldo de Andrade invites you an open and experimental laboratory where neuroscience, art, dance and music together look for new forms of understanding the world. As an audience member you will enjoy a mix of short presentations, performances, videos and collective exercises that all reflect on how we as humans perceive the world through the body and through vision. Both science and the arts share similar and different understandings on how our inner and outer worlds are shaped and interact: How can the thinking around these questions, the feeling of our bodies inform how we take in the world? Can we activate our senses in new an unexpected ways by learning about ourselves and about life together?

By allowing these ideas to co-exist the participants and audience will learn and develop together. Each presentation offers research questions, possible answers and solutions rather than facts. You, as an audience member therefore play an important part in the ongoing research, exchanges and your contribution can inform the form and content of the event.

Alvaro Machado Dias will talk about how meditation has changed how neuroscience understands the world and invites the audience to make a meditative practice with a drummer. Lia Chaia will present videos of her work and make a group exercise. Per Huttner, Carima Neusser and Siri Jennefelt will present a video performance. The event will end by a collective discussion where everyone can share their views.

More Eyes forms a part of Swedish Visual artist Per Huttner and choreographer Carima Neusser’s research into the above questions. It has been presented in similar formats in Mexico City and Los Angeles. The event in Sao Paulo has been developed with researcher Vinicius Spricigo.

The project is funded by Helge Ax:son Johnsons stiftelse, The City of Stockholm, the Swedish Arts Council and is supported by Sao Paulo Escola de Teatro.

With:
- Alvaro Machado Dias, Neuroscientist, Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP)
- Lia Chaia, artist, Sao Paulo
- Per Huttner, artist, Paris
- Carima Neusser, choreographer, Stockholm
- Siri Jennefelt, composer, Stockholm
