The Braincar is a new mobile sculpture/multimedia project by artist Olaf Mooij. His general idea, inspired by his interest in our connection to automobiles, was to create an car that could capture images throughout its day travels and “dream” about them at night. By “dream”, he means modify or “remix” the images in some kind of random way. These images are then projected onto the underside of the brain sculpture.
In an attempt to understand the connection between our daily experience and that of our vehicles, Mooij questioned “what it would be like if instead the car itself could experience with a kind of consciousness its own passage through space and time.”
The Braincar modifies and plays back images of the day acquired from its travels onto the underside of its “brain”.
