M.Sc.

Drew Cooper

Charité Universität Berlin

Drew Cooper is a scientist and artist from the United States of America. His work is an exploration of themes in computation, neuroscience and psychedelia. He seeks to create mesmerizing audio-visual experiences, taking you into abstract hallucinations of the mind.

Drew Cooper is part of the Art and Music Team of the INSIGHT 2019 conference. Many of the artists are researchers from fields like neuroscience, cognitive science or anthropology at the same time. Visit their work during the conference and on Friday night at the Art and Music event.

Euclidean Eulogy

This piece is an exploration of the geometric visual hallucinations experienced during psychedelic trips and related psychophysical phenomena.

Mechanistically, visual hallucinations are thought to result from complex inhibitory signaling in the visual cortex, which ultimately generates endogenous geometric form constants. These “core” hallucinations, when interpreted by higher order cognitive processes, produce the kinds of complex visual hallucinations associated with the psychedelic experience.

My neuroscientific research concerns the mechanisms of visual perception and hallucination as it relates to schizophrenia, so this project seemed to be a fitting extension of my work into art. Where in the lab I create structures to inspire hallucinations, here I create the hallucination itself.
