Einstein's Brain is a collaborative, immersive, virtual and augmented reality work, begun in 1996, that explores the notion of the brain as a real and metaphoric interface between bodies and worlds in flux, that examines the idea of the world as a construct sustained through the neurological processes contained within the brain. It suggests that the world is not some reality outside ourselves, but, is the result of an interior process that makes and sustains our body image and its relationship to a world, and that the investigation of virtual reality, its potential use as a perceptual filter, and its accompanying social space is an exploration of the new constructions of consciousness and the consequent technological colonization of the body.


Alan Dunning, Paul Woodrow and Morley Hollenberg are the main participants in a team of scientists, artist and technologists developing the virtual reality and bio-electrical work the Einstein’s Brain Project. In collaboration with team members from Japan, UK, US and Canada they are investigating ideas about consciousness and embodiment through the realization of shared, immersive virtual environments and the construction of surrogate bodies.
