Hardwired: Imaging Belief investigates the physical effects of religious experience on the human brain and presents visual art responses to these findings. The work presented includes an introduction to the field of neurotheology and offers an alternative understanding for what we have traditionally considered to be supernatural experiences. The physical nature of this newly discovered understanding is presented abstractly in seven works of art that include images of electrical hardware. This art intentionally references traditional representations of religious experiences while offering contemporary iconography inspired by neurotheology.
