Cognitive Technology Group and m0xy
The Cognitive Technology Group is composed of neuroscientists, artists, bioengineers, game designers, and computer scientists, all of whom use the brain as an input device. Bent on understanding the brain and extending it through technology, they are presenting their research in order to educate the public on what goes on inside the mysterious “black box” that is our brain. m0xy is an Industrial Arts Incubator in East Oakland, California, dedicated to supporting artists in the creation of public art and assisting them to build sustainable businesses. The 44,000 sq ft facility includes a 9,000 sq ft gallery and an 18,000 sq ft modifiable shop space for artists in residence.
This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of 3Scan, InteraXon, SparkIO, Alchemy Events, Puzzlebox, DigitalOcean, OpenBCI, LEAP Motion, NeuroSky, Dangerous Creative, and AgentFin Consulting.
