artist and researcher
After extensive research into the brain through scientific books, journals and websites, I compiled information about my lifestyle, genes, medical history, skills and dyslexia. These variables have a direct link to both the physical structure and electrical activity of the brain. From this information it was possible to draw a self portrait, a literal mind map of my own brain through 100 horizontal sections. 100 Slices shows all those sections laid out in a geometric spiral. The piece is exactly the same volume as my brain is calculated to be. It is installed in front of a white background so that shadows form part of the reading of the piece.
