Are you an Artist or do you manage a Gallery & want to know more about our research?

Contact us: crackedpainter@icloud.com

We are a team of Artists and Researchers utilising BCI (brain control interface) technology to investigate the Hidden Responses of the brain.

Mission

The mission is to create an exhibition environment that will assess how art is seen and the potential of the technology to create new work.

  • Recording brain patterns of myself and fellow artists both trained and untrained. 

  • Invite scientists and professionals alike to explore this ever changing exciting field of the neuroaesethic.

  • Invite viewers of art to experience it in a new way.

Neuroaesethics

"Neuroaesethics" was coined by Semir Zeki in 1999 and formed its formal definition in 2002 as the scientific study of a work of art. By using neuroscience to study and explain the aesethic experience to art.

We are the artists exploring the possibilities of pre-genetic disposition, entrainment, pareidolia and other physiological and neurological phenomena.

Using BCI and EEG system, a computer based technology that allows us to record , decode and interpret signals from the brain.

NEUROPLASTICITY

Neuroplasticity is the brains ability to form change in synaptic connections within the Neuron pathways creating new connections between areas of the brain especially after experience or trauma.

However this does also occur during learning of a new skill. Such as art.

Evidence shows that the benefits enhances brain function and has impact on the brain waves, emotion and the nervous system.

Art also raises serotonin levels this is not only during creation but also through observation having a marked improvement on wellness.

we are exploring to see where the creative research and neuroscience might lead. 

OUR AIM/Ethos

 

Our aim is to start a collective of positivity within a community our stories are varied coming from different backgrounds with different strengths and practices.

 

Finding studio spaces for any artist is difficult however should one be disabled there are little sometimes even no available options other than that of prescription art programs. We propose to create a studio space that would,

 

  • Create programs with local communities in mind. This would include liaising with existing art groups in the north Devon area as far as Plymouth and beyond.

  • Be inclusive and accessible for all.

  • To regenerate community spirit by organizing events, open days, and demonstrations.

  • To give an accessible space for disabled /abled artists to work and develop their practice. Working along side each other. 

  • Offer students the opportunity to gain experience in a working and professional studio.

"As an artistic professional, I’m always looking for the next opportunity to translate what I experience into art. Since 2011, I’ve led a life fully devoted to the arts. It’s no lie to say I live, breathe and dream of art. I have experience in a range of media, although I have my own particular preferences that I keep coming back to. If my style speaks to you, do give me a shout out, and look forward to possibly work with you in the future.

There's art tracks at the top of the page, music made from the collected sounds made on a
wheel chair hit with hammers,  screwdrivers on spinning wheels etc.. and the other one is recorded from a journey.

Or...you could make a cheeky start.
