Referencing MRI scans, this sculpture uses individually painted sheets of Plexiglas that work together to create a 3-dimensional brain. Viewed from the sides, the brain is a complete image but as the viewer moves around the piece it becomes a series of disjointed layers. Within the brain are webs of connected and disconnected structures. The light gives the brain an ethereal quality, adding to its delicate state.
