Event description
Artistic Explorations of Thought

About this Event

For over 40 years, Dr. Audrius Plioplys has been both a professional artist and a neurologist-neuroscientist.

His art work is neo-conceptual: a metaphorical investigation of thinking and consciousness. With over 50 individual exhibits and 100 group shows, his works are displayed in museums, universities and major art collections internationally. Plioplys has transformed the artist’s studio into a neurobiology research laboratory: he has merged neuroscience with art.

Four “Pillars of Thought” pieces, color-changing LED sculptures that are free-standing and independent, representing our human existence. are on permanent display in the newly dedicated Sigita and Audrius Plioplys Atrium at the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge at the University of Chicago.

Where does awareness come from? How is it that we are cognizant of ourselves and of those near us? What is it that makes us human?

Dr. Plioplys will be speaking about his exploration of these questions and more via his art.
