  • Neuro Memento Mori | Jane Prophet
    lives as a result Neuro Memento Mori is inspired by an object in the Wellcome Trust Permanent Collection Wax model of a Female head depicting life and death Unknown 1701 1800 It shows a woman s bisected head the left half apparently a detailed portrait of a living woman open eyed with painted lips and blond hair arranged in ringlets Her left hand frames her face while the right half of her head is shown in post mortem decay Resting on her skeletonised right hand her skull crawls with insects maggots and worms A snake emerges from her empty eye socket This compelling object prompted me to question whether as we look at memento mori artworks we do remember we must die What parts of our brain are active when we look at these artworks and when we contemplate death directly without looking at memento mori art Made in collaboration with neuroscientists Zoran Josipovic NYU and Andreas Roepstorrf Aarhus University I looked at representations of memento mori while in a MRI scanner that records my brain function Following Josipovic s instructions I learned to meditate to contemplate death and repeated that meditation in the scanner Neuroimages were processed to produce 3D data of my brain to make 3D printed sculptural objects The form of the life sized portrait sculpture refers to the Wellcome Trust object the artist s head is dissected revealing the skull and brain Video and computer animations are then projection mapped onto the sculpture to create a contemporary memento mori Following Zoran Josipovic s instructions she has learned to meditate specifically to contemplate death She will repeat the meditation exercises in an fMRI scanner Accumulated fMRI brain images will be processed producing 3D data of the artist s brain Sculptural objects made from this data will show

  • Bad Hand: leave me alone        | Jane Prophet
    and chair sheet of white paper The video piece leave me alone 2013 from the series Bad Hand is in homage to the allegedly psychotic patient of a European psychiatric institution Emma Hauck Her penciled letters form part of the Prinzhorn Collection and are typified by one ca 1909 in which she wrote over and over again Sweetheart come in pencil until the single page of paper is reminiscent of a field painting a dense layering of text that becomes image These letters from the asylum to her husband are labeled with her name and her apparent mental illness as though the illness if it were accurately diagnosed was as much the author or as though the letters cum artworks were a gauge or expression of her illness If such repetitive writing was an expression of psychosis could a state of psychosis be induced temporarily by writing in a similar way repetitively I sat in a small soundproof room and wrote the first phrase that came to me repeatedly until the physical pain in my hand from writing made me stop I used a Livescribe pen with audio which enabled me to playback in real time the act of writing

  • Manifestations | Jane Prophet
    Five years after the court case that temporarily imprisoned the man stalking me I re read the letters he sent to me I read one or two each day when I arrived at my studio I could not easily separate the object letter from my embodied experience of it nausea adrenalin stress and its distributed environment fear of death the bureaucracy of crime I began to notice different words and phrases as I became less focused on obvious threats and bloody descriptions I was drawn to a hitherto hidden narrative populated by objects and characters that seemed to be of value to him and to have a meaning that I could not easily discern I used search engines to associatively connect these words and phrases to images to try and understand his world I used the letters as a model of the inner world of someone with psychosis the written descriptions as representations or models of his world view I was interested to see what actual images might be associated with all the words and phrases I received The process of making the photo text works 1 Read the stalker s letters sent 2000 2001 2 Select key words or

  • Taking Your Hand (2013) | Jane Prophet
    The meanings of the sentences you wrote are lost as I look at the shape of individual letters But when I zoom out lean back in my chair and look at a letter from a distance even though it is not in one of your sentences I feel a little sick Then I zoom back in again because the size of the letters is not proportionately right The p is tiny and the o too big I look at the photocopied letters again trying to only see individual letters and how they flow into other letters trying not to read the meanings that you made with them The meanings that I made of them Then I go back to the font software and start to edit Transcription of Taking Your Hand Number 5 Thinking about the process of making art as a combination of inner and outer work This project is an experiment in exploring the inner Wondering if it is possible to continue to make large scale pieces that are external to me outer if I do not address the inner At the threshold of the inner is my experience of receiving unsolicited letters Of reading threats and being full of fear And fury Typing now in your hand is an oscillation between moving into the fear to the inner and out again I realise that every time I type a letter on the keyboard that I have not yet managed to replace with a scan from your letters the font switches from Stalker03 to Times New Roman I don t have a comma or apostrophe I go back to the font menu and reselect Stalker03 then type a comma and lose it Then return to the menu and select Stalker03 The act of typing becomes an oscillation between
