Creativity of Consciousness

Creativity of Consciousness

First Friday Reception, Friday April 7, 5 – 8 p.m.

China Blue will present a lecture at PCA&D on March 17 at noon

For PCA&D’s Spring 2017 exhibition series the College focuses on scientific and technologically inspired art work. The study of science and art via cutting edge technology is narrated through the artists’ creative practice, exemplifying the desire to know more about ourselves and our world.

Artist China Blue is interested in how our world is built from our sensations and perceptions. Her work enhances the audience’s perceptual world through her investigations and explorations into bioacoustics, ultra and infrasonic sampling devices, brain wave monitoring, and robotic sensory avatars.

Creativity of Consciousness is a pioneering work that provides new access to cognitive and emotional domains and demonstrates that we can actually drive our external reality via internal mental states. This work illustrates that if art reflects reality in its relation to mankind then seeing our brain activity reflected as art is the most direct avenue to viewing creation and the state of being.
