A digital archive of Asian/Asian American contemporary art history

Word Brain Still

28x22 inches (h x w x d)
archival inkjet print

A visual poem inspired by the artist's conversations with Dr. Einar Mencl, Director of Neuroimaging Research at Haskins Laboratories, a Yale affiliated institute for conducting research on spoken and written language. With support by The Arts Council of Greater New Haven and The Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism.
This work presents neuroscientific terminology and images from the laboratory as pictorial workplay. "@@@@@" was shown to subjects in an experiment on the cognition of real words vs. non-words. The floating shapes throughout are color-coded activated brain areas lifted from original lab sources.
