The brain is an adaptive network of neurons. Neural connections grow stronger and sprout new connections the more often they are used. Conversely, connections that are not active tend to weaken and atrophy. Neural Network takes the microscopic interactions in our brain and makes it into an floor-to ceiling interactive artwork. Coded in Processing and using Open CV, the network reacts to red light. The neurons grow from a neuron body into an axon which then sprouts neurotransmitters. The neurons that have not be active are programmed to decay over time by changing color.
