DR. GREG DUNN IN COLLABORATION WITH DR. BRIAN EDWARDS
Chaotic Connectome, 2013
22k handmade gilded microetching (24 x 28 inches, framed to 31 x 27 ¼ inches). Number 6 of a limited edition of 10.
Chaotic Connectome is the first microetching ever produced, and is of an abstract neural landscape. This piece was initially developed to illustrate the depth of complexity of any given region of the brain through designating specific sets of neurons to different reflective “channels”.
Microetchings are handmade lithographs that manipulate light on a microscopic scale to control the reflectivity of metallic surfaces in precise ways. These techniques were invented by Dr. Greg Dunn and his colleague Dr. Brian Edwards in order to change the way in which the viewer experiences a painting. Please note that these microetchings are designed to evolve based on the moving perspective of the viewer and are impossible to capture in still images.
