Although the process of painting the brain was intuitive and the resulting imagery was abstract, the paint began to take on the visual characteristics of neurons. Each spot of paint became a soma and each drip formed axons and dendrites. Despite popular belief, creativity does not originate from one side of the brain, but utilizes many different regions working together as a team. Somata is an artistic interpretation of the mapping of the creative brain.
