Dirk Westphal is a multimedia artist who lives in New York City and works in photography, sculpture, installation, music and performance art. His photo series are united in their focus on artifice and mutation as hallmarks of our culture. Westphal's recent work includes exhaustive visual studies of overbred goldfish. In this rendering for The Brain Project, thoughts and memories are not unlike fish that swim with purpose and intent. Murky water changes everything. So does dementia.
