Our mind is a truly beautiful and elusive concept. Despite massive progress in brain research, we still cannot quite explain where our mind is and what it looks like. I created the “Brilliant Mind” by taking schematic images of the human brain from the Allen Brain Atlas and recreating them as beaded histological sections on 6 sheets of plexiglass. The sections can be assembled into a sculpture or you can hang them individually.

You can read more about the inspiration and process behind this work here, here and here.

Makes a wonderful gift for a special neurologist or neuroscientist in your life. (Or even a whole department!)
