  • Brain Poetry is a poetry generator, which produces poetry from the user's brain waves. An EEG signal determines the style and meter of the poem. The artwork examines the combination of a human and a machine in a creative process. In Brain Poetry, methods of cognitive science are introduced to art.

    Brains on Art is a Helsinki-based art collective that was established in 2010. Its installations use a combination of scientific and artistic methods. The collective consists of art education, electrical engineering and cognitive science students who are all interested in the dialog between different fields.
