Please note: This exhibition contains flashing lights that may cause discomfort and/or trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy and other conditions with sensitivity to light.
Curated by Tom Eccles and Bouthayna Baltaji, the installation invites visitors to embark on a journey of self-discovery through a multisensory experience that inspires introspection and awe. Your Brain to Me, My Brain to You symbolises humanity’s collective unconscious and the power of the mind.
A key feature of the installation is the “pixels” that comprise 12,000 LED lights strung on cables throughout the gallery for visitors to navigate. Representing neurons, constantly firing and communicating with each other, the pulsing resin-encased bulbs have been programmed in choreography with a soundscape and video installation featuring abstract footage of Qatar’s landscapes.
As they make their way through the exhibit, visitors are encouraged to turn off their personal devices and prepare to experience the journey fully, shifting their focus towards activating different senses.
