Art from the Left and Right Sides of the Brain

An artist in residence at Harvard Medical School has created an installation that uses custom software algorithms to create a glowing, pulsing pool of organic patterns in the lobby at the newly opened 21C Museum Hotel Cincinnati.


Brian Knep’s Healing Tiles create patterns that slowly pulsate and shift over the course of each day. When visitors walk across the piece the patterns tear apart and rebuild themselves. According to the artist, the change “is similar to a scar left behind when a wound heals.”

Knep earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science and a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Brown University. A former engineer at Industrial Light & Magic, Knep worked on films that included Jurassic Park and Mission Impossible.


Innovate New Albany, the city’s incubator for technology startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses, features 16,000 square feet of space within the New Albany Business Park’s Signature Office Building, 8000 Walton Parkway.
