Presentation Title:

  • Neuron Conductor: Visualising Cultured Neural Responses to the Introduction of Viruses and Chemicals through a Robotic Arm Conducting Music

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • Neuron Conductor investigates the effects of biological neuron activity, cultured on a microelectrode array, in response to the introduction of viruses and pharmacological treatments. The responses are visualised through the movement of a robot which conducts a unique musical score. The resulting art/science work presents an alternative means of visualising and understanding neural responses as well as raising awareness and accessibility of the research. Neuron Conductor investigates real health issues in a unique manner as well as contemplating the role of non-human agency within hybrid biological/digital systems.
