Toronto, BRAIN PROJECT
“EXPERIENCE SCULPTURES INSPIRED BY 33 BILLION NEURONS”
The world we see depends on our perspective. The artists find it inspiring to hear how others explain what they see. “Mirotic” visually illustrates the different perspectives people see by using a mirrored surface on the pyramid structure and dichroic film to adjust the colour depending on the angle from which the film is observed.

The Yogen Früz Brain Project is a large-scale, outdoor exhibit that brings brain health, art and imagination to the streets of Toronto. In its inaugural year, The Yogen Früz Brain Project launched across Toronto and started a public conversation about brain health and brought awareness to diseases like Alzheimer’s. Now in its fourth year, The Yogen Früz Brain Project will bring together a diverse group of artists from around the world who will transform blank brain sculptures into beautiful, energetic and thought-provoking pieces of art. These sculptures will be sponsored by corporations and philanthropists, and placed on display in more than 15 locations around the Greater Toronto Area. Funds raised through the project are donated to the Baycrest Foundation, the fundraising arm of Baycrest, a global leader in brain health and aging.
