Abstract

Contrary to what was previously thought, the brain is never inactive. In fact, its greatest lucidity is evidenced when it does not pay attention to external stimuli. The interactive installation Default arises from this premise, as well as from the dialogue between design and neuroscience. This article analyzes the heuristic process and the aesthetic result of said work. It explains the hybrid route between the scientific concept and the development of an interactive and immersive work whose purpose is to captivate the audience with aesthetic enjoyment, generating curiosity about the innermost states of the mind.
