This sculpture is constructed of neurons forming connections between the synapses. In this artwork the neurons have been pixelated – referencing the difficultly observing thoughts visually.
It provides a moment to think about thinking, we can’t see the new neural pathways that are being created with new experiences, interactions etc. It’s about believing the unseen.
‘Thought pattern’ is a string of connected neurons creating a thought or idea. The work is about making thoughts visible and drawing our attention to the possibility of new connections being made between neurons. Our curiosity is a fundamental disposition which underpins neurological growth: for it is curiosity that is at the heart of exploration, is the catalyst of motivation and leads us to creative and critical thinking.
