Mona Lia

Lia Cook California College of the Arts
“Mona Lia” is a woven artwork 81” x 51”. This a portrait of my self as a young woman. I use DSI Diffusion Spectrum Imaging (DSI) of the brain and TrackVis software from Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Mass General, Harvard to look at the fiber connections of communication between different parts of my brain and to integrate these fiber tracks with the actual fiber connections that make up the woven translation of an image. After looking a very realistic and photographic image at a distance I am interested in the emotional experience as a person moves closer in relation to the work and discovers the tactile nature and associated memories of tactile experience. It is part of a series of artworks combining personal interviews, woven faces or portraits of others, with the DSI imaging of their own brains with the use of TrackVis software.
