Part exhibition, part forum and part science-art workshop, Amnesia Lab is a new kind of gallery event.
Amnesia Lab is an ongoing collaborative research project involving artists, writers and neurosychologists from the UK and Australia. For Signs of Life, the Amnesia Lab looks into the human brain and the processes of memory.
Building on this collaborative research project, the team, including artist Shona Ilingworth (Kent University), memory specialist Professor Martin A. Conway (City University, London), neuropsychologist Catherine Loveday (Westminster University) and NIEA researchers Jill Bennett and Volker Kuchelmeister, will stage a series of talks in specially designed environments, utilising a range of media and technologies such as EEG sonification, drawing, and immersive interaction.
