How to See Red (2005)

An exploration of human brains and minds. How to See Red draws inspiration from the metaphors used by neuroscientists, meditators, and psychoactive drug users to grapple with the problem of consciousness. We evoke a stream-of-consciousness-like experience, pausing occasionally to consider the brain as a theater, the synchronized firing of neurons, and other mysteries of the mind.
