Also on for this years Nuit Blanche at the Gladstone #embodiment by Maria Galaxidas – #embodiment is an interactive LED sculpture that depicts the left hemisphere of a human-cyborg brain. This spectacle of LED theatrics will consist of various patterns provided by clear super-bright LEDs with an underlying layer of RGB LEDs. The RGB LEDs will represent the popularity— in descending ranking; red, green, blue and yellow—of certain active words throughout Twitter. These words will describe the responsibility of each lobe in the human brain. This simulation represents the collective cognitive perception of the Twitter community. Maria Galaxidas is a Toronto based New Media artist who has a particular interest with working in the medium of graphics, electronics, and video manipulation. Her particular interest of aesthetics circulates around the experiential use of its audience (both in the social context of the online and offline world). To create this expression, Maria’s works are driven around the use of innovative technology and how it effectively communicates in an artist or design merit. The majority of her works are surrounded by the themes and/or heavily influenced by the following topics; psychology, science, or cyborg anthropology.
