A project inspired by the lecture, “If brains are computers, who designs the software?” by Daniel Dennett. A philosophical approach related to neuroscience.

We live in a society where technology has developed to such an extent because of our improved intelligence over time. Questions, dreams and fantasies start to relate to each other. Would it be possible to recreate the nervous system with a technological process, like 3D printing?
Instead of using already existing 3D printing systems, I started autonomously working with chemistry and electricity. My aim was to make these two elements communicate with each other to create an interpretation of the nervous system.

The process is simple: halogen lights using electricity provide heat that slowly warms up the glass. Since glass has the advantage of remaining at a consistent heat, the wax is able to change consistency and melt. The motion of dripping and melting creates “prints” and the shape of the prints are based on the heat settings.

The installation was a collaboration with Arthur Maduro,
and the project became a "Staff Pick" at the
Art of Neuroscience 2017 award
