Expressing bodily complex nerve issues, focusing on (mis)communication between brain and body, caused by breaking connectivity and resulting in profound, perplexing and random external manifestations. I approach a complex and multifaceted subject in a multi-layered, multidimensional way.
Reading this statement, you are using external bodily senses, multiple parts of your brain - most importantly the internal nervous system’s communication method to pass the signals back and forth.

This is what I aim to heighten the awareness of. What it is to be human: embracing humankind.
Ensuring to keep abreast of neuroscience and medical nature news, using art as a tool in the breakdown and dissemination of knowledge and findings. Discovering an article regarding Neuronal Diversity ‘Much like snowflakes, no two neurons are exactly alike.’ (Carnegie Mellon 2010) MS is known as the ‘Snowflake’ disease due to symptoms being so varied, my ‘Biorhythm’ drawings became my snowflake-neuron metaphor. Created using my body as a seismograph, this led to a search for pattern, a reoccurring rhythm in the drawing that correlated fractal in the chaos. Visual language: my encounter with Pataphysics had begun.
