I thought I could live forever

The work is titled "I thought I could live forever", an oil painting based on actual brain-signals from a rat during the last 60-seconds of his life. This was a part of our study investigating the anti-depressive effects of deep brain stimulation (DBS).  For this work, the original data was collected using a micro-sized carbon fiber electrode in combination with a sensing technique (fast-scan cyclic voltammetry) in the animal's brain. For this painting, a 3D representation of the sensing readouts was used. The vertical access here represents the applied potential in volts which is plotted versus the time of the experiment. The color intensity indicates the amplitude of the recorded neurochemical activities in the rat's brain. In another word, every color and every shade may represent some thoughts and expressions the subject went through over the last 60 seconds.
