Sound Science Podcast is a monthly podcast by Dr. Yewande Pearse about the science stories that affect our lives and have in some way influenced music.

Episode 5: The Left-brain vs. the Right-brain

At some point in your life, someone may have asked you whether you are left brained, or right brained. Or maybe you have heard someone proudly proclaim that they are right brained. This show is all about ‘The Left Brain Vs. Right Brain’ and the long held belief that people tend to have a personality or style of thinking that is either “right-brained or left-brained”. As a musician is your right-brain really doing all the work? Myth, half myth or truth? 

Guests:

Judith is an artist, whose recent work ‘Befriending Hyperobjects’, was recently exhibited at NAVEL in Los Angeles.

Rex Eugene Jung is an American psychologist who has researched on the neural basis of human intelligence and creativity.

Befriending Hyperobjects is an ongoing decentralized eco-performance interfacing art and technology to fund environmental projects.

Hyperobjects are entities we cannot grasp in their entirety, such as water, cyanobacteria, or typhoon. They appear to us as an abstraction due to their scale, ethereal nature, or non-linear relationship with time. They are comparable to #hashtags.

In this project, artists “befriend” hyperobjects, similar to how you can befriend or follow someone online.

The initial exhibition at NAVEL in Los Angeles featured 17 artists from 5 continents and was fully biodegradable with exception of the technology needed for display. Instead of solitary human art practice, this project portraits the encounter and collaboration of human and non-human entities.

We were able to raise $82.98 / 0.46 ETH for the native plant nursery Hahamongna in Pasadena.
