An Chinese artist jody xiong has collaborated with 16 handicapped people in the artistic and technological realization of the "mind art" installation. The project participants were asked to choose a paint color, which was placed in balloons equipped with tiny detonators. Large canvas panels surrounded the balloons on all sides. Through deep concentration, electronic signals from their brains were captured and sent to a neurosky processing unit that triggered the detonators, which resulted in the formation of abstract paintings. 800,000 renminbi (about USD 130, 700)  from the painting auction was donated to various charities. The results were, quite literally, mind blowing, as the team describe,"we showed that although the bodies of disabled people are handicapped, their minds aren’t."
