Connections between visual art, vision neuroscience and computational methods of representing and understanding human vision are on view in this work created through the MIT Museum Studio.

A novel method is used for drawing with “neural code.” Patterns of light and dark across scales activate the brain’s low-level visual processing. As the eye explores the drawing, viewers experience creative functions of their own perception. Between ambiguity and order, vivid 3D impressions emerge—textures, geometric forms and spatial depth.
