Brain Terrains is an ongoing series of artworks that explores our perception of self. The works juxtapose our interior landscapes as observed through medical imaging of the body, and our exterior landscapes as witnessed through satellite imaging of the Earth from NASA’s Earth Observatory. These works invite us to contemplate the resulting in-between world that we have come to know as ourselves.
Brain Terrains is an ongoing series of works that explores the experience of locus in our personal geographies. These works explore notions of self within the context of our micro and macro environments; in the context of our understanding of interior and exterior; in our conceptual models of world, and our displaced experience of body.
The works juxtapose our interior landscapes as observed through medical imaging of the body, and our exterior landscapes as witnessed through satellite imaging of the Earth from NASA’s Earth Observatory. In combining these realms, the Brain Terrains series exposes the perceptual nature of self, which can be seen to exist somewhere in an in-between place among these realms. We temporally inhabit both and neither.
ResultThese works are in private collections, and are on display at the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre, Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University. Works from the Brain Terrains series were jury selected through the 2013 BIC Art Competition.
Inter-Regnum is a wall mounted installation that explores our relationships to our maps and mental models of the world. Featured in the GLOBE 2016 Conference and Innovation Expo, Vancouver.
