As I learn about the anatomy and the biochemical “magic” that occurs inside and among the nerve cells of our brains, along the spinal chord, and throughout the body, I create artwork that resonates with what I learn. Its never meant as a diagram or a scientific illustration per se but rather as an homage to the known and known neurochemistry that is at play in our sentience.
This clip shows about a minute of a rotating slideshow which includes images form my 2D portfolio. All images shown in various configurations on the screen are randomly organized purely for display and review purposes. Its one way to help visitors understand the style, variety, cohesion, and scale of works available for display and for collecting. This is only a small subset of the many images I’ve produced as 2D extractions from time-based video art projects. The bulk of the images shown in this clip are from an ongoing artistic exploration of the wonders of the neuron. These are not intended as strict illustrations but rather a visual appreciation and exploration of what we know and what we don’t know (yet) about how these amazing cells function, both internally and as part of a vast network of similar cells, to form our sentience and our identity.
Please reach out to me if you have questions or leave any questions or comments here on the blog.
