The human brain is the most remarkable thing in the universe, according to the human brain. But what does it look/feel/taste like? This dream will let you explore, poke and eat replicas of real human borderling brains! Suitable for vegans.
Brains are awesome and gorgeous, but kinda hard to explore hands-on since they're stuck in our heads. What do brains actually look like? Are two brains similar? Are hippie brains squigglier than others? What does it feel like to hold a friend's brain? Or to eat your own? To answer these burning questions, this interactive brain exhibition will let you explore real individual borderling brains made out of a range of more-or-less edible materials!
The brains will be created from volumetric photos taken with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), from which the gray matter (the cerebral cortex) is mapped and converted to a 3D model. This models are 3D-printed, and based on the 3D-prints different molds are made - in chocolate, marzipan, ice, jello, panna cotta, vegetable paté, etc etc.
But! These are no ordinary brains, they are BORDERLING brains! We already have access to several beautiful burner brains, but we'd love more - see below how you can volunteer your own brain! Send questions and brains to the artist Malin at email@example.com.
The artist is a neuroscientist who wants to eat your brain. She has eaten her own multiple times, obviously.
Minimal waste, and every bit of brain substance left will be cleared and packed out. The exhibition area will be mooped regularly.

Volunteer your brain! To create an edible replica of your brain, we need the raw data from a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of your brain. You may already have this from an examination at the hospital or participation in a research study. If so, contact the hospital or research group and ask for the raw data. This data is usually in a so-called dicom format which consists of a ton of files. Depending on where you live, they are legally obligated to give you this data. You may have to pay a small processing fee. Send questions or data to the artist Malin at firstname.lastname@example.org !
Hey friend! Welcome to the virtual drawing board of The Borderland. This is the place where we prototype the projects we'll realise during the week in the quarry.
