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?
