Explosive Mind Art with No Limitations

Art can be anything. It can be something that we created or things that already exists. It is the expression or imagination. There is no specific forms or specific guidelines to create art. We think, we express and we create. “Mind Art” is an installation that was created by Jody …

Art can be anything. It can be something that we created or things that already exists. It is the expression or imagination. There is no specific forms or specific guidelines to create art. We think, we express and we create.

“Mind Art” is an installation that was created by Jody Xiong, who is both an artist and graphic designer based in Hunan Province of China. This installation is created for the acrylic paint brand Winsor & Newton during Shanghai Design Week. They wanted to raise awareness for the disables, who deserve our recognition and respect.

Jody and Winsor & Newton created “Mind Art” in a promotion video. They started by recruiting 16 handicapped people via social media to participate,

First they chose their paint colors. Then the colors were placed in balloons equipped with tiny detonators. Large canvas panels surrounded these balloons on all sides. By concentrating really hard, electronic signals from their brains were captured and sent to a NeuroSky processing unit that triggered the detonators, which resulted in these wonderful abstract paintings. It shows the capacity of the human spirit is unlimited, even though it may be trapped within the disable body.”

“Mind Art” is a project that is not only interesting to look at, but at the same time very meaningful. We all have the opportunity to enjoy the process and the result of creating art. Projects like “Mind Art” gives disables a chance to enjoy the same process and feel both the excitement and happiness of making their own art piece!

Let’s enjoy the “Mind Art”!
