Think Outside the Box. Reach and Stretch


Our mind wanders, constantly. It never tires of flowing, jumping, somersaulting. At times it walks away, stops and gets stranded. Deep inside in its meanders wonders happens and we are not aware of them. In some cases, we don’t need to the mind is autonomous. When we need to know the circuit of connections make its way to the surface and we light up. Eureka!

In times when life asks questions we need to reach out, stretch and search. We need to think outside the box, our box and look for unfamiliar and apparently strange associations. We need to walk a different way be brave.

This artwork would like to represent this journey. The box is a recycled item, my mind is not newly formed the paper strips are the beginning of pathways that are searching for connections reaching out and stretching looking for the extension the meeting point where new realisations will happen.

Ripples. An Imaginative Journey.


via Ripples. An Imaginative Journey.

Ripples of colour that float through imagination creating a beaded necklace of impressions joined by the invisible tread of possibilities.

In our mind as children, bearers of the past and for runners of the future we draw out our ancestral knowledge and plunge into reality creating ripples that should be left to travel. Don’t stop the flow. Step inside and listen.

Celtic knots and Mind Wandering.

What could Celtic Knots and Mind Wandering have in common?

Celtic knots have no apparent beginning or end. When we mind wander we are not consciuos of when it starts or ends. We often go round and round in circles travelling through thoughts and feeling in a similar pattern to the making of a knot.

Celtic knots are constructed around geometrical shapes that could metaphorically reflect brain areas, all connected and running.

While making the knots the artist is captured in a sense of meditation, of quiet mind wandering. Themes around the knots are eternity so infinite possibilities, pattern, life, movement, connections, meanders and labirinths. Mind wandering takes you along the same paths.

The line in a knot at some point goes back to the begining to then begin again just like our thoughts, once they know the way they will automatically find their way round.

Celtic Knots are refered to as knotworks. Can we extend it to brainworks where the knot is seen as the pathway of electrical impulses?
