AFTER THOUGHT @
THE SCIENCE FAIR
Flux Factory

After Thought is a portable personality testing kit, which uses flashcards, brainwave analysis and custom software to generate a video reflecting the subject's emotional landscape.

During the interview, the participant wears an EEG-monitoring headset and turns over flashcards of charged imagery, such as a house on fire, a traffic jam, and a cute puppy. I track their relaxation and stress levels, noting the images that trigger unusual responses. Afterwards, custom software processes the test results and creates a unique 5-minute video composite of associated imagery. At the end of the session, each person receives a copy of their video.

Flux Factory and The Metric System are proud to present Science Fair, an exhibition of works by artist-scientists and scientist-artists!

Inspired by grade-school education fairs, Science Fair is a collaborative effort that examines science-based projects and concepts through the lens of art. Artists will create their own presentation booths and interactive experiments to be on display at the Fair. The exhibition explores the potential for science as a breeding ground for art: a way to inform and inspire art as a springboard for creative thought.

The Fair will showcase over two dozen projects including an artist-run weather station, robots that draw, urban meteorites, a cabinet of curiosities, and electro-magnetic field mapping. The Metric System is a New York-based collective that encourages cross-disciplinary collaborations between artists, thinkers, scientists, and political activists.

For more information or press inquiries, please contact they@thetheyco.com. The Science Fair is made possible in part through generous support from the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the Carnegie Corporation.
