ARTECHOUSE’s fall exhibition is a bit more science than art. That’s not surprising, considering the heavy emphasis the techy Southwest venue puts on technology as a conduit (and an inspiration) for artwork. In Life of a Neuron, the focus turns to the most basic unit of human technology—the tiny “thinking cells” in the brain that carry electrical impulses. The exhibition promises to dive into everything we know about how those cells work and communicate from birth to death, but the artistic interpretations begin where our knowledge ends and mystery begins. What is consciousness? What is thinking? How can science describe the wonders of human emotion and cognition? The Society for Neuroscience and a group of installations from worldwide artists will attempt to reckon with those questions in an immersive environment. Sept. 27 to Nov. 28 at ARTECHOUSE. $17–$24.
