Melting Memories presents aesthetic interpretations of motor movements inside a human brain. Each work grew out of Anadol’s experiments with the advanced technology tools provided by the Neuroscape Laboratory at the University of California, San Francisco. Anadol gathered data on the neural mechanisms of cognitive control from an EEG (electroencephalogram) that measured changes in brain wave activity and provided evidence of how the brain functioned over time. These data sets constituted the building blocks for the unique algorithms that the artist needed for the multi-dimensional visual structures on display. The exhibition’s title, Melting Memories, refers to the artist’s experience with unexpected interconnections among seminal philosophical works, academic research, and artworks that take memory as their principal themes. The title further draws attention to the melting of neuroscience and technology into these centuries-long philosophical debates, revealing the emergence of a new discourse that puts artificial intelligence in dialogue with individual and collective memories.
