Work for a group exhibition at the Medcalf Gallery..... http://upsideart.wordpress.com/
UPSIDE exhibition lines up artists, bringing together an extraordinary collection of their reasons to be cheerful. Private fascinations, small joys, curiosities and indulgences will be exposed and rediscovered, stimulating recollections of on-lookers own experiences. The project promotes the idea that the upsides of life can be found in surprising places.
Default Mode Network
- at the end of a busy successful day – sitting on a bus –
- lulled by rhythmic engine sounds and movements -
– safe – relaxed – contented -
- unrealized mind wandering -
The default mode network is located in brain regions that are active
when the individual is not focused on the outside world
cognitive processes are decoupled from current sensory information
Moments of unrealized daydreaming and mind wandering
occur when brain activity is at its strongest and lacks meta awareness
enabling coherent neuronal oscillations at a rate of
one approximately every ten seconds.
