14th Istanbul Biennial: SALTWATER: a theory of Thought Forms ThoughtForms and Brainwaves: Neuroscience and Art Public Program
Istanbul Modern, Turkey and Online.
In collaboration with Vilayanur S. Ramachandran and the
Behavioral Neurology and Movement Disorders Unit at the Department of Neurology, Istanbul
The Thought Forms Test was shared with visitors with the help of students from the Behavioral Neurology and Movement Disorders Unit at the Department of Neurology, Istanbul, who asked visitors at the Istanbul Modern to fill out the simple questionnaire on hand-held tablets, allowing visitors to have the test within their peripersonal space.

The data was also gathered through posting the online link to the test on the Istanbul Biennial website and social media sites. There was a version in Turkish and one in English to allow participants as much access as possible. We tried to make the Turkish translation as similar in meaning to the English so as not to create a divergence of results between the English and Turkish speaking participants.
The Test asks for name, age-group, gender, country of origin, and automatically notes the time and date. As of today there have been 456 submissions in Turkish and 93 in English.
