Oda di Neuro (installation, 2012) An installation that moves the audience into the symbolic representation of a microcosm of the brain. The viewer enters the installation space with an EEG device that maps brain activity for the reception of the audio—visual stimuli. At the same time, he/she experiences these stimuli generated by their brain and represented by a flashing LED and audible sequences that are controlled by EEG.
You can therefore imagine how firing coalitions of neurons form the basis of a conscious experience, accompanied by a constant pulse oscillation of 40Hz. The same frequencies are produced by the brain when perceiving oda di neuro. In this way, the micro and macro levels combine and penetrate, carrying the Gnostic idea of transcendence.
