Body Electric combines active sensing in interactive cultural
experience with the study of such systems in neuroscience. It is the
collaboration between Professor
Simon Penny, Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director
of the Arts, Computation and Engineering
graduate program in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Malcolm
MacIver, a mechanical engineering postdoctoral scholar at Caltech.
The exhibit studies the sensory systems of fish that use weak electric
fields to "see" the world around them.
