In the installation Superposition white space with its sculptures and colorful lights embody the structures of mind. The space represents a sort of transforming template or a map, out of which the human mind and the self are built. It is a receptive surface, like skin is the surface of our bodies. The basis of my work lies in the data discovered in brain studies and models created from the operating mechanisms of the brain. Our brains are dynamic systems that constantly adapt their inner connections to serve the demands of the environment. My installation Superposition brings to light mechanisms by which the human body, mind, brain, and consciousness are interconnected and work together to create a microcosm that operates on its own rules, constantly developing and shaping its activities. Human interaction and the building – and destruction – of mutual relationships result from the creation and destruction of complex connections.
