Eden Studies brings together science, visual arts and architecture to explore the relationship between ecosystems and artificial life. The Hotel Eden, neighbour to the Blue Brain and Human Brain projects (co-funded by the European Commission) in Geneva, serves as an observatory to examine the creation and mapping of a synthetic human brain. The documents, sounds and images resulting form this research are gathered in a dynamic generative archive.
