Just as a traditional artist decides on a general direction for their imagery before squeezing their selected paints onto their palette to begin, you too choose your style and colors. You can pick your favorites, coordinate with a room d├ęcor in your home, or just go with how you feel on the day. Seen here are color palettes for the art styles.

Gear Up

We use a state-of-the-art EEG headset. It collects your brainwave information and analyzes what your brain is doing. Specifically, we collect how you're feeling. When you begin Brain Painting, this information streams wirelessly in real-time through the Braintone Art Imagery Generation Engine to project your emotions as abstract artwork on the digital canvas.

For this to work well, we need unobstructed access to the forehead and left earlobe.


Paint

3

It's time to create. Direct where your brain will paint by simply facing where you want the art to appear. Your brain does the rest.

Let your mind take over and begin creating artwork based on your art style and color palette, coupled with your conscious and unconscious cognitive thoughts and emotions. Don't worry, that questionable image you're envisioning in your head won't show on the canvas. We measure very high level thought only.

The beauty of painting using your brain is that there's no mess, no artistic ability required, and it can be created quickly. A typical session takes minutes. When you're done painting, we simply remove the headset from your head.


Sign

Then, after you've painted, you get to sign your new masterpiece.

You get a small take-away print with a scan-able QR code so you can view your entire session snapshots whenever you want and, of course, to share with others.

Discussion with others about what was happening on your canvas is always an enjoyable activity of discovery. What does your artwork tell you about yourself and your brain? What were you thinking when you created it?

Mood Bloom

This style generates a continuous flow of modern shapes which bloom in color and form based on the your immediate emotional fluctuations. The new shapes burst off the canvas in the location of your concentration while older shapes slowly fade into the background to make room for new art.

Ink Thoughts

Drawing from the discipline of psychology, this style is a modern take on the visually striking Rorschach inkblot test. Working across a vertical plane, Ink Thought's dynamic style displays two mirrored images developing simultaneously. The ink drops where you focus, bleeds, blends, and dries. It then fades slowly so you can create new mysterious forms.

Your artwork has been created, but what does it mean? All artwork reveals a story about you and your brain. What were you thinking when you created your art? What kind of emotions did that conjure? Your artwork's composition is directly tied to the answers to those two questions. The key below will help offer insight to your brain ... to your story and what it really meant to you.

Color

Color is determined by your MEDITATION levels. Low meditation levels trigger the far left color in your palette and the higher your meditation, the colors farther to the right are selected. Relaxing by taking a deep breath and/or closing your eyes will help to trigger your meditation levels.

Placement

You control exactly where you want to paint simply by facing in the direction you desire. Your PAINTBRUSH will follow. This is accomplished using a sensitive head tracking system.

Shape & Form

The shape and form are determined by your FOCUS levels. This kind of thought could be best explained as trying to concentrate on an idea or, even better, a physical object on the screen.

With Mood Bloom, the shapes become more angular and complex as your FOCUS levels increase.

High FOCUS levels in Ink Thoughts are indicated by ink that hits the canvas with a high velocity.

Blending

Seen in Mood Bloom, vibrant color can pop off the artwork when certain blend modes are triggered. The blend modes have unique characteristics, and when they intersect, you can generate colors that are an extension of your color palette. These blend modes are determined by your SUSTAINED MEDITATION levels.

On one end of the spectrum you may see lighter results from the blending. A super meditative and sustained state will show very dark color, associated with the intensity of burning. Not everyone can trigger this. It's pretty cool when this happens.

In Ink Thoughts, the ink blends together following the visual rules of physics as seen in the natural world.
