Thinking about nothing was created to coincide with the exhibition NULL OBJECT: Gustav Metzger thinks about nothing, a project by London Fieldworks at WORK, 30 November 2012–9 February 2013.

NULL OBJECT: Gustav Metzger thinks about nothing was a new artwork by London Fieldworks (Bruce Gilchrist and Jo Joelson) with the participation of the acclaimed artist Gustav Metzger. At the centre of this work, a computer-brain interface had been linked with industrial manufacturing technology to produce a sculptural object in Portland stone. Using bespoke software, London Fieldworks produced 3D shape information from EEG readings of Metzger’s brainwaves as he attempted to think about nothing. This data was translated into instructions for a manufacturing robot, which carved out the shapes from the interior of a block of stone to create a void space. A timely addition and challenge to the present climate of technological evolution and increasing cybernetic augmentation, NULL OBJECT offered an alternative model for a creative, non-invasive interface between body, mind and machine.
