Dick, A Scanner Darkly stars Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Robert Downey Jr., and Woody Harrelson.

Metadata:

For more than two decades, neuroscientist Kristen Harris and her laboratory team have been mapping the brain. Studying, photographing, and analyzing the cell biology in the hippocampus—the part of our brain which drives memory and its connection to emotion—their work informs our understanding of learning and recollection. They were among the first to develop computer-assisted approaches to analyze synapses in three dimensions, providing a new perspective on the nerve cells which make up our brain’s functions. Series of images are collected from the lens of an electron microscope and, when stacked into animation, provide clues into the ways our memories adapt and change over time, with synaptic plasticity being key to the lab's research. Paired with Graham Reynolds’ composition “The Brain,” a new work inspired by Dr. Harris and her lab, the resulting imagery serves to visualize the structure of the brain and the meticulous detail that goes into its study. This multimedia experience is part of Golden Hornet’s “The Sound of Science,” featuring Jeffrey Zeigler, co-commissioned by Kathleen and Harvey Guion, and conceived of by Graham Reynolds. Contains strobe-like effects.

Music recorded on May 14 and 16, 2018, at National Sawdust; composed by Graham Reynolds; performed by Jeffrey Zeigler; and recorded and mastered by Marc Urselli. Visuals by Dr. Kristen M. Harris, John Mendenhall, Masaaki Kuwajima, Dakota Hanka, Josef Spacek, Tom Bartol, Randy Chitwood, Art Wetzel, Dusten Hubbard, Justin Kinney, Terry Sejnowski, Clayton Smith, Lyndsey Kirk, and Patrick Parker. Video editing by Annika K Horne. Video produced by Kate Murray and Graham Reynolds.
