Brain Trip at the Centraal Museum based in the Netherlands uses EEG for its latest piece of art. The exhibition connects with users' brain waves to give each person a uniquely surreal experience.

The technology taps into how relaxed or tense users are, then based off this will change in terms of imagery as well as tempo. As explained in the video, surrealism requires one to let go of reality and give in to an entirely new world. What better way to exploit this than completely taking someone out of their mind and placing these thoughts in front of them in a wacky and wonderful way? This interactive piece of art titled Brain Trip really allows visitors to experience surrealism firsthand, instead of observing it from a distance.
