We Convert Our Mind To Creativity



In 2011 M. G. Dorniak initiated the self-organised group We Convert Our Mind to Creativity, with the aim to connect people from various backgrounds to talk about topics that adress all people, such as the human cognition, the anthropocene era, and sociology. While the group had no specific location, it worked in various locations, and throughout the web.   
The first project was a festival and exhibition uniting artists and scientists with the audience to exchange, experience new knowledge, new technics on the universal topic of >Human Cognition<.With works by: Anthonis Antonellis, Dominik Bubel, Ting Cheng and Virginia Francia, Elisa Damm, Darko Dragicevic, Martin Fell, Rudolf Grillborzer, Demian Kern, Christine Sun Kim, Frederic Kokott, Ginna Lee, Tómas Lemarquis, Matthias Neumann, Thilo Seidel, Marielena Stark, Rosemarie Stuffer, Jetske Visser, Lukasz Wierzbowski Symposium: Dr. Karl F Wender, Jasmin Sinha, Matthias NeumannModeration: Monika Dorniak
The second project was a symposium, expanding the application of design and the potential to
abstract or heighten everyday-interactions. Selected artists presented  interdisciplinary performances and gave the audience a new perspective by participating interactively.
