We have entered the era of «Big Neuroscience». The goal of the BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative in the USA is to map the activity of every neuron in the human brain, and the mission of the European Union’s HBP (Human Brain Project) is to construct realistic simulations of the human brain – they are the biggest scientific challenges of the 21st century. With this exhibition, «SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: The Brain,» Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI) and the New York Hall of Science, want to display the aesthetic results of human curiosity about the brain (human or other). We seek stunning, two-dimensional images of original art (executed in any visual media), inspired or informed by any aspect of the brain or new discoveries in neuroscience.
