The virtual objects made by the EEG scan of mental responses may evolve through multiple-axis 3D metal printing and robot fabrication into large-scale steel architectures. This enables the construction of a full-size bridge complementing Langlois Bridge near Arles, which Van Gogh depicted in the image that triggered the mental response in the first place. In languages such as French and Portuguese, bridges are considered in engineering and architectural parlance ‘works of art’. An architectural approach to the virtual objects may choose Van Gogh’s bridge as a point of entry.
