Resonance Punctuated 2017

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows scientists to safely peer into the living, thinking human brain. A deep interest in biology and structure drew me to human MRI slices taken from the axial direction or horizontal to the upright body. In this work, I’ve merged MRI scans with clay because clay, like the brain, is plastic and malleable. Into slabs of clay I’ve pressed tools and gadgets from industry and technology and heightened these impressions with pigment. Once it is fired to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, the dented ceramic comes to resemble bio scapes marked by culture. The digital brain scans, combined with the scarred geologic material, become a metaphor for the plasticity and impressionability of mind.
