Memory corrosion

SYNAPTIC CONNECTIONS ON CANVAS      PHILIPPE HALABURDA STUDIO IN NEWBURGH, NY, USA     JUNE 2023

About the theme of "memory corrosion"

In this series of 3 canvases, I imagine how to paint
the mechanisms behind memory corrosion.

Memory corrosion in the human brain refers to the degradation or loss of stored memories over time.

While the brain is an incredible organ capable of encoding and retaining vast amounts of information, it is not immune to the effects of time and various factors that can lead to memory decay.

I use yarn and tape to represent structural and functional changes in our brain, such as the loss of neurons and synaptic connections.

The yarn may symbolize the interconnectedness of neurons,
forming intricate networks that represent cognitive functions.

Conversely, tape could signify the stability or fragility of synaptic connections, with changes in color or texture representing alterations
in brain structure over time.

This hands-on method offers a tangible way to explore and communicate the dynamic nature of neural plasticity, illustrating how the brain adapts and transforms in response to various factors.

It's an innovative way to bridge the abstract concepts of neuroscience
with a tangible and visually impactful representation.
