EEG Triggered Neurons on Fire with Mens Amplio

Join your CCL friends for a tour of the epic Mens Amplio project!

Mens Amplio is a 15 foot tall model of a human head and brain, designed by Don Cain and built by a team of artists from a wide range of disciplines. The brain incorporates an array of light and flame effects controlled by a participant through the use of an EEG headset. The headset translates the participant’s shifting mental and emotional state into patterns of light and fire mimicking the images of clinical brain scans in real time. The MA crew brings together expertise in brain imaging and neural interfaces, LED and flame effects, and metal fabrication to create a sculpture that bridges the worlds of art and science.

    Cool interesting in how electronics work that can sense what going on in the brain and body.

    Great meetup, nice to have met some of you. I posted some photos on the meetup page, and a short video clip of Mens Amplio in action at .

    Arrgghhh!!! I host a camera club meeting that night. I saw the model in its early phase before the neurons got connected.

      I chair the Travel/Journalism division for the Berkeley Camera Club and would love to bring a small group (<12) to do a photo-shoot of Mens Amplio at American Steel. 12/17 is not possible, however, as it is pre-scheduled for a projected images competition. I anticipate attendance of 40 plus a judge who will be traveling some distance. However, if an additional/alternate night can be scheduled for another Mens Amplio I will put it on the BCC calendar and certainly encourage members to see this and other marvelous American Steel constructions.
