The Metronome ticks, the Lady blinks, and the Finger flexes. Together they enact a scientific experiment that was originally conducted in the 1980’s by Benjamin Libet. The experiment, which was conceived to measure decision making processes in the living human brain, is frequently evoked in debates around the idea of free will.
