Fashion and the Brain – 2018 Scientist Artist Collaborative

Fashion and the Brain – 2018 Scientist Artist Collaborative

2018 SAC

UMSL-Missouri Institute of Mental Health is proud to host transmedial artist, educator and curator Yvonne Osei (yvonneosei.com) for the third year of the MIMH’s Scientist Artist Collaborative (SAC) program. The exhibition represents the culmination of the UMSL-MIMH 2018 Scientist Artist Collaborative.

Osei collaborated with scientists, researchers, and clinicians at MIMH who strive to improve and transform mental health outcomes through innovative research, program development, program evaluation, and community outreach.  Together Osei and members of MIMH dissected “Fashion and The Brain – How is the Brain Fashioned and How is Fashion Brained?” through artistic and scientific methodologies. In response to prompts conceptualized by Osei, the team engaged in a performance art of thrift-shopping for articles of clothing that represented their 20-year-old selves. “Fashion and The Brain” showcases remnants of the performance, a transformation of clothing into art that reflects memory and memorabilia, family history and personal accounts, self-love, travel, and the boundless nature of time.

MIMH’s SAC program is an opportunity to connect leading artists with Principal Investigators/Scientists at MIMH to facilitate new and creative basic science research to develop innovative and high-impact prevention and intervention programs. Artists and scientists share many common attributes, particularly in terms of engaging the creative process. However, science can easily become overly focused, conservative, and guarded, slowing the scientific process and limiting the breadth of outcomes.

The SAC works to break through these barriers and encourage PIs to engage the in creative process in the most effective, impactful, and innovative manner. The collaborative transfers big picture thinking and disruptive artistic process into the scientific arena to promote scientific discovery that improves the human condition and leads to a better world.

Join us Friday, October 26th from 6pm-8pm for food and drinks at Arcade Contemporary Art Projects (812 Olive St., St. Louis, MO 63101) to celebrate MIMH’s Science Artist Collaborative culminating event!

What exactly is CBD Gummies? CBD gummy bears come in various shapes, sizes, flavors and strengths. While they might appear and taste just like chocolate, CBD gummy bears contain active chemical called cannabidiol (CBD). This chemical is known to have medicinal benefits. Apart from treating medical ailments, the chemical is also said to be an effective weight loss aid.

Gummy bears that are made from CBD are believed to provide consumers with the best form of CBD available in the market today. A lot of consumers have expressed their desire for a quality CBD product that has a higher content of cannabidiol (CBD) than other forms of this powerful plant extract. These CBD gummy bears have come on the market in various forms, shapes and strengths. They are being marketed by different manufacturers such as Michael Melton. There is even a type of them that are being marketed as energy drinks.

If you want to find out what the best gummy bear for you has to offer, you should first determine what you want to achieve from taking them. Are you looking for a natural appetite suppressant? Are you looking for an effective weight loss aid? Do you want to experience a soothing effect? If you want all of these things and more, then you need to get yourself some high quality CBD supplements.

You will discover that many people prefer the taste of CBD to that of other fruits. This is due to the high concentration of cannabidiol (CBD) in them. Some of the best gummies are in the shape of a cookie. Others have a fruity flavor, while others are mixed with nuts or other ingredients. However you want to take them, you can be assured that your body will be getting the benefits you are looking for.

The Gold Bee Gummy Bear brand uses fruit-like CBD gummy products that are easy for children to take. This is why Gold Bee has been voted as one of the providers of the best CBD gummies by Observer. This is because the product is designed with a long moldable shell that makes it easier for little hands to open it and take the supplements in. It also has an easy to remove design on the outside. This means that little children will not get their fingers stuck inside the shell while trying to take the supplements.
