  • The opening installation, by the artist Daniel Canogar, inside the new traveling Brain exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History, fills the entry with 1,500 pounds of recycled wire that are illuminated from below with planes of light.

    The clever visual effect creates the illusion of particles of light traveling neuronal pathways - a perfect start to a brain exhibition.
