Abstract or Description

This paper discusses the author’s artwork, Neuro Memento Mori,
a self-portrait comprising digital animations and live action video
projection-mapped onto a 3D print. The life-sized sculpture of the
head and neck, dissected to reveal the artist’s brain, was produced
from MRI data gathered as the artist viewed memento mori
paintings and meditated on death. The production of the artwork,
made with neuroscientists, explores the relationship between the
so-called frontier of neuroscience, data and the map. The use of
computation to produce neuroimages, 3D prints and projected
video is discussed from the perspective of critical cartography.
