Step Inside This Brain-Like Pavilion for an Eerie Architectural Light Show

Have you ever wondered what a thought might look like traveling through your brain? In a recent installation in Moscow's Nikola-Lenivets park, media design firm Radugadesign animated the inner workings of the human brain with an innovative video projection. Universal Mind, a sculptural installation by artist Nikolay Polissky, serves as the immobile backdrop for the elaborate video mapping project. Over the course of nearly eight minutes, Polissky's brain-like sculpture explodes into a maelstrom of light and sound, with carefully curated streams of energetic colour interspersed with dark scenes of manufactured glimmering starlight.

The New Media Night Festival orchestrated the installation on July 5th with over five thousand in attendance across the three-day festival. Nikola-Lenivets park is home to 28 different public sculptural installations.
