The mind, the brain, is the gateway between the inner and outer worlds, the center of creation. Uniquely individual neural pathways exist within our brains, configuring and responding to our changing and different experiences of life, fine tuning and tweaking our abilities and inclinations. The reason I am left handed, the reason I am dyslexic, the reason I am me.
Triggered by personal MRI scans, 'Ice heads' is part of an on-going multi-media body of work depicting the complexities within my brain. The ice sculptures are taken from a cast of my own head.
Modern day technology can see inside my brain but only I know what I am really thinking.
