During her residency, Caron will present Waves of Mu, a neuroscience-based art installation and performance work for eight public performances.
Salt Lake City Utah-based Caron is known nationally as an edgy, contemporary artist whose interdisciplinary work draws from choreography, performance, photography, video, music and her experience as a former aerial ski jumper for the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team. Although she is not a scientist, Neurology Now recently profiled her as one of their “Inspiring People” for her creation, Waves of Mu, which probes brain anatomy and function from the perspective of the debate surrounding mirror neurons, a provocative discovery that has captivated scientists and the public alike.
