A Diagram of Somnolence ny Minjeong An. This piece is about the state of being half awake and half dreaming. Juxtaposing a dream in the awakened reality and a fantasy in a dream, I tried to visualize how organs work in the stage of somnolence (drowsiness) using signs and codes, including the anatomy of a brain, reactions within the nervous system, the link between the brain and the eyes, etc.

Giorgia Lupi: "Abstract art and data visualization are related indeed in terms of visual languages, colors and lines to create compositions which can exist even independently from visual references in the world. I [wanted] to come up with a data visualization able to replay that very geometric feeling, pleasant aesthetic and colors’ related flavor I had throughout my whole visit, passing by Mondrian’s, Malevich’s, and Kandinsky’s pieces."

Camillo Golgi, Olfactory Bulb, 1875. “This 1875 drawing of a dog’s olfactory bulb by Camillo Golgi is but one of the many astonishing architectures that were revealed by a staining method that bears his name. Its application to the study of nervous tissue marks the beginning of modern neuroscience.” — Carl Schoonover, Portraits of the Mind: Visualizing the Brain from Antiquity to the 21st Century
