Project Description

Karen Casey exhibition, Global Mind Project February 2011, curated by Lanfranco Aceti, Vince Dziekan and Christiane Paul for OCR’s Media Exhibition Platform (MEP). The ‘Global Mind Project’ is a media arts and cognitive neuroscience initiative by Australian interdisciplinary artist Karen Casey. Referencing both traditional and contemporary modes of practice Casey’s work explores intersections between art and science, drawing upon the interplay between mind and matter in order to question and challenge perceived notions of reality, time and space and our collective worldview.

Evident in the works documented in this exhibition, including events such as ‘Spectacle of the Mind’, a series of unique outdoor performances involving artists Stelarc, Jill Orr and Domenico De Clario at Federation Square, Melbourne in 2010, Casey’s practice raises awareness in her audience of the technological possibilities for artistic collaboration and an interrogation of consciousness and creativity.
