If a person was able to look into the mind of Lia Chavez, an American artist living and working in New York City, they would be treaty to a stormy sight filled with ominous clouds and lightning bolts. Through her brain wave artworks, that is exactly what is portrayed. That might seem strange considering it's through a meditative mind frame that these images are captured.

With wireless sensors pressed against her head, the brain wave artworks come to life. Chavez says, "It’s like watching storms of consciousness develop and dissipate over time. It’s incredibly intense. It’s incredibly violent. The closer I get to this quiet place, the more intense these visions become." She dubbed the brain wave artworks, Poiesis/ Tumult. It was brought to life with the help of creative technologists at Rehab Studio in London.
