This project scrutinizes the historical and current shifts in medical research and ethics as pertaining to definitions of informed consent and body sovereignty, while broadening media and scientific literacy by deploying other misunderstood tools (the EEG) in a creative manner. Information obtained from the EEG is used to manipulate growing conditions for a colony of HeLa GFP cancer cells inside a custom-designed incubator.

Collaboration with Byron Rich and Heather Brand.
