BRAIN AWARENESS WEEK

2012

marionet participated in the exhibit “O Cérebro a Cores” (The Brain in Colors), organized by the Centre for Neuroscience and Cellular Biology of the University of Coimbra (CNC).

The exhibit “O Cérebro a Cores”, held at the exhibit gallery of Dolce Vita Coimbra from March 5th to April 1st, included scientific photographs taken by CNC researchers as well as an installation which resulted from marionet’s artistic residency at CNC in 2010.
The installation is composed of a metallic brain with a nucleus of scientific articles from CNC research groups and filled with the memory of the residency. It’s a brain built upon the CNC’ scientific knowledge and marionet’s artistic vision of the work developed at the research centre. Its weight,1.4Kg, is the average weight of a human brain.
