Brainstream is an interactive animated film in which a young girl is livestreaming her thoughts during a new kind of treatment session. Online, along with other participants, you massage her brain. Now, she’s telling you about her weekend. Earlier, her anxiety played some catchy beats. Empowered by your stimulating presence, she is giving you a guided tour inside her head, opening up as her mind wanders. The piece explores, with sensitivity and humor, the fascinating workings of our brain.
