The mind is an inscrutable thing. Science can tell us exactly how a neuron operates, but it cannot even start to explain why we love, hate, hope or dream.
Neural Constellation is a pulse-based neural network created using circuit boards and microcontrollers. This system is modeled after neurons in the human brain. Each of the independent neurons communicates with flashes of light. Forming an interconnected neural tissue.
Unlike most computing systems, this one is not kept constantly busy with endless calculations. This is a mechanical brain at rest, blinking away in peaceful slumber: dreaming.
built w/ ATtiny13 microcontrollers
sound done with processing and Pure Data
Neural Constellation was done as my Undergraduate thesis project at RPI.
