Illustration for the technological article about the BrainNet experiment. In this article I explain how scientists have managed to connect two brains in a way that they can communicate and play Tetris in a collaborative way.

Thinking about connecting brains, I remembered the connected hearts from the painting “the two Fridas”, from Frida Kahlo. In it, Frida self-reproduces twice. To the right, the old Frida, in love with Diego Rivera and dressed in a traditional way, holds a portrait of her ex-husband. On the left, the new Frida dresses more modern and holds the scissors that are to cut the veins and arteries that unite the two hearts of the two Fridas as a metaphor for her break with the past and a step forward after the separation from her husband.

The illustration is a free interpretation of Frida’s painting with connected brains instead of hearts and pieces of Tetris in her hands instead of scissors and portraits.
