Conclusion: Neuromedia: Talking into the Future.

  • Jill Scott

In this book we have attempted to provide a window into the processes of discovery by artists and scientists through four case studies. In each study, interactions between the artist and the scientists have resulted in four media art sculptures. They suggest how neuroscience research methods and knowledge can be inspiring for artists. There will never be a shortage of such subjects to be explored in future art and neuroscience collaborations, because neuroscience labs are full of new wet-materials, microscopic views of reality and innovative lab processes as well as creative experiment building that might prove relevant to the practices of making more provocative art in the future. The resultant collaborations may even vary from those that are more art driven, with sole artistic reflections, to teams of artists working together on one project to reflect about scientific evidence, to projects, which bring together the artists and the scientists as equal collaborators. As the diaries of practice show in this book, the artist has assumed the additional role of science student and art director (of others) to produce her work.
