Dr. Sean Montgomery
Sean Montgomery grew up in a small town in Northern California, USA, got his Bachelor's degree in Psychology and went on to get his Ph.D. in Neuroscience. During his studies, Sean began creating art works exploring the intersection between biology and technology that have since been shown in galleries, museums and conferences around the world. Sean now lives in New York City and works as an artist, entrepreneur and technology consultant.
My recent work grew out of my research in neuroscience studying the electrical properties of neuronal networks in the brain. From the perspective of a neuron, both the embrace of a loved one and a cold winter day feels like a sequence of electrical impulses, and this perspective is one that I hope to share through my creative process. My work utilizes sensors that measure the viewer’s biological signals to create a lens for viewers to look back on themselves from the perspective of their own body.
