About:

Brainlight is a new technology that intergrates art, science and design allowing you to see your state of mind live in a portable brain sculpture that lights up your brain activity. 

In this highly interactive workshop students will learn about:

  • Neuroscience- what are brainwaves? How does the brain work? What are electrical impulses?
  • Emotional intelligence- learn about how the brain responds when you feel different emotions (stress, anger, excitement, calm) and learn how to gain control of them.
  • Mindfulness- See what your brain looks like when you are calm and meditative and learn ways to retain that state.
  • Data Visualisation-  Learn about the field of data visualisation and see the electrical activity of the brain transmitted from a wireless EEG headset be transformed into light.
  • New Brain-Computer Interface technologies (EEG): Experience first hand how a non-invasive EEG (Electroencephalography) devices work and what the possibilities are for these devices in the future, eg. mind controlled wheelchairs
  • How art, design, science & technology can collide: Learn how these interdisciplinary fields can benefit each other and the importance of being multidisciplinary in the future.


This program was developed by artist/designer/biologist Laura Jade and has been demonstrated at major museums in Sydney and in institutions nationally and internationally.
