How does it work? What does it look like? What does it mean?

Mood Bloom

Mood Bloom art style.

This style generates a continuous flow of modern shapes which bloom in color and form based on the your immediate emotional fluctuations. The new shapes burst off the canvas in the location of your concentration while older shapes slowly fade into the background to make room for new art.

Ink Thoughts

Ink Thoughts Art Style

Drawing from the discipline of psychology, this style is a modern take on the visually striking Rorschach inkblot test. Working across a vertical plane, Ink Thought's dynamic style displays two mirrored images developing simultaneously. The ink drops where you focus, bleeds, blends, and dries. It then fades slowly so you can create new mysterious forms.


Just as a traditional artist decides on a general direction for their imagery before squeezing their selected paints onto their palette to begin, you too choose your style and colors. You can pick your favorites, coordinate with a room d├ęcor in your home, or just go with how you feel on the day.

NeuroSky MindWave headset.

Gear Up

We use a state-of-the-art EEG headset. It collects your brainwave information and analyzes what your brain is doing. Specifically, we collect how you're feeling. When you begin Brain Painting, this information streams wirelessly in real-time through the Braintone Art Imagery Generation Engine to project your emotions as abstract artwork on the digital canvas.

For this to work well, we need unobstructed access to the forehead and left earlobe.


It's time to create. Direct where your brain will paint by simply facing where you want the art to appear. Your brain does the rest.

Let your mind take over and begin creating artwork based on your art style and color palette, coupled with your conscious and unconscious cognitive thoughts and emotions. Don't worry, that questionable image you're envisioning in your head won't show on the canvas. We measure very high level thought only.

The beauty of painting using your brain is that there's no mess, no artistic ability required, and it can be created quickly. A typical session takes minutes. When you're done painting, we simply remove the headset from your head.

Painting with your brain.

This is an evolving work of art, transforming with every shift of your brain activity. Every ten seconds the current visual state was recorded. When you've completed your painting, you can review and choose your favorite moment as the final artwork.

Review your brain-generated artwork.


You get a small take-away print with a scan-able QR code so you can view your entire session snapshots whenever you want and, of course, to share with others.

Discussion with others about what was happening on your canvas is always an enjoyable activity of discovery. What does your artwork tell you about yourself and your brain? What were you thinking when you created it?

The aim of the Braintone Art Experience is to offer everyone the joy of self-created art and the rich discussions that frequently spark from its creation. You may also choose to have your artwork applied to canvas, rugs, or other products.

The artwork is not only by you, but also of you ... a rare combination. You have brought a piece of yourself forward into the world in a new, real, and artistic way. You are an artist.
