Featured Artists
Refik Anadol
Refik Anadol reveals an exclusive 10 meter by 10 meter artwork, specially commissioned for Aurora’s Evening of Discovery. The data sculpture visualises the transition from negative mental states to healing in patients undergoing medical health therapies. The work was produced using a compilation of bio and neuro-signal data collected from a network of healthcare centres using MindMaze’s digital therapeutics for neurorehabilitation, and will be presented in partnership with founding partner of Aurora, Impact One. Developed as part of Impact One’s mental health initiative MYND, the artwork means to place an emphasis on the importance of attending our mental health and physical wellbeing.
Mouna Rebeiz
Mouna Rebeiz is a Lebanese-Canadian painter based in London. She grew up surrounded by musicians, painters and poets, who influenced her painting. Fascinated by the multiple facets of the human being and the human psyche, she studied psychology at the Sorbonne and at Saint Joseph University in Beirut. In her works, both figurative and abstract, Mouna Rebeiz captures the energy of life itself, and the life of women, expressed at its simplest, as a universal crucible of emotions. Her sculptures, like revisited totems, are set to the rhythms of present time in the playfulness of space. Rebeiz works currently form part of the 2022 Venice Biennale.
Nathan Copeland
Nathan Copeland is a 35-year-old neurotechnology consultant, speaker, and artist who, in 2004, was left paralyzed from the chest down after a car accident. For the last seven years, Nathan has been a pioneering participant in a brain computer interface study that has enabled him to operate robotic arms, regain the sense of touch, play video games, and even make art -- with just his mind. A self-professed “cyborg,” he has been featured in numerous publications including Wired, MIT Tech Review, NPR, Fortune, and the Atlantic. Nathan loves Japanese pop culture, created the very first BCI NFT, and will soon hold the world record for longest chronic BCI implant (August of 2022).
