Electromagnetic Brainology 電磁腦神教!誕生! | 2017 | Animation 動畫

Hinduism and Buddhism believe the world is of four elements: earth, water, fire and air, that are the “great elements”. Earth element is the firmness in our bodies like our mus- cles; water element is the liquidity of our bodies like our blood and body fluid; fire element is our inner temperature; and air element is the chi in our bodies. The elements are all seen in the great chiliocosm, hence they are named the great elements.

The four deities in the Electromagnetic Brainology refer to four pains in the nervous sys- tem. The anubhava of the earth deity controls the neuron in the thalamus which receives the pain signal, acting at the sensory area of the cerebral cortex, to relieve the pain of earth element. The anubhava of the water deity controls the autonomic nervous system, and the connection among cerebral cortex, hypothalamus, and autonomic nervous sys- tem, to relieve and eliminate the pain of water element, such as excretion, blood and pus. The anubhava of the fire deity controls the neuron at the thermal receptor, to relieve or eliminate the pain of fire element. The anubhava of the air deity controls the respiratory center of human to relieve or eliminate the pain of air element.

Each deity owns a DBS mukut (Deep Brain Stimulation mukut). Besides, every deity is designed to own a TMS wand (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). DBS technology is related to electric stimulation, while TMS technology is more related to electromagnetic stimulation. The artwork is hence collectively referred to Electromagnetic Brainology.
The artwork is a part of the artist developing a large project of religion, medicalogy, and neuroscience. The artist has been exploring on the topic with Krafttremor - Parkinson’s disease orchestra (2010), Wrathful King Kong Core (2011), LuYang Delusional Mandala (2015), LuYang Delusional Crime and Punishment (2016), Electromagnetic Brainology (2017), and the upcoming work Electromagnetic Brainology - Brain Control Messenger (2018). Each work is independent while related to the other works.

Famous J-Pop writer invisible manners is invited to produce a part of the music, in the artwork. Besides writing the music for the artwork, they also invited famous Japanese idols to produce the theme song of the new work “Electromagnetic Brainology” in 2018.

印度教和佛教講這個世界的組成元素分為「地,水,火,風」,稱為「四大」。人身的肌肉等堅固質屬地,流動如血液津液等屬水,體溫屬火,以及體內氣分屬風。此四種物皆見於大千世界,故稱為大。

電磁腦神教內的四個神則是對應了四大痛苦在神經系統中的關聯。地神的威神力可以通過 調節控制接受疼痛信號的丘腦神經元作用於大腦皮層感覺區來緩解人類的地大之苦。水神 的威神力可以通過調節控制自律神經與調節大腦新舊皮質、下視丘與自律神經的關聯來緩 解或免除人類關於血液循環,排泄,唾涕膿血的水大之苦。火神的威神力可以通過控制作 用於人類溫度感受器的神經元參與來緩解或免除人類的火大之苦。風神的威神力通過調節 控制人類的呼吸中樞來緩解或免除人類的風大之苦。

每一個神都有DBS 神冠(深層腦刺激神冠),另外每一個神都有TMS魔法杖的設定(經顱磁刺激技術)DBS 技術和 TMS 技術,前者與電刺激有關;後者跟電磁刺激有關聯,所以這件作品統稱為電磁腦神教。

這件作品是藝術家正在發展中的一個大項目,內容關於宗教,醫療,腦科學方面。有關的 探討,她從2010年的《震顫麻痹計劃》、2011年《忿怒金剛核》、2015年《陸揚妄想曼陀羅》、2016年《陸揚妄想罪與罰》到2017年《電磁腦神教》,以及2018年新作《電磁腦神教-腦制御士》,與未來的作品作為一個長期思考探索研究的計劃,每件作品既獨立,又 和其他作品有持續的關聯。

這件作品的音樂部分製作邀請了著名J-pop製作團體Invisiblemanners,他們除了製作了 這個作品的音樂,還邀請了著名日本偶像一起製作了2018年新作的《電磁腦神教》主題曲。
