The thoughts inside my head, the left and right side.
The video was created because I thought it was the best way to show the simultaneous drawing I can do with both my left and right hand. It came from I experiment for my art/sci project.
I exhibited these drawings at the Pierhead building, Cardiff Bay, Wales two weeks ago with the Cardiff Science Festival 2013 which was amazing. Everyone found the drawings interesting but I think everyone wanted to see HOW they were created. so here an example...more to come!!

The project is a collaboration between a growing number of people from Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) UK, namely Prof. Derek Jones, Dr Silvia De Santis, Mark Drakesmith and Paul Alan. Also Laura Cowley who has a background in psychology and neuroscience who works at University Hospital of Wales.
CUBRIC investigates information pertaining to the connections, structures and myelin fibers that carry information between different brain regions through Magnetic Resonance imaging (MRi) scans. In June 2012 my brain was scanned by Silvia de Santis in order to recreate artwork that focuses on using the cutting edge neuroscience methods at CUBRIC including Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTi) along with MRi. One never forgets the experience, the load tinnitus, droning, buzzing, grinding forcing of magnetic resonance through the matter of sub/consciousness brain. The artworks I create include both purely imaginative creations, responses and a mergence of the anatomically correct data regarding brain structure garnered from the MRi scan recreated and explored in a variety innovative visual explorations.
