Change is Beautiful is a visual replica of my brain in its current form.
Art impacted the trajectory of my recovery and has been the most effective tool to allow me to make sense of the mysteries in my brain. I want to explain with art what science has not been able to. My brain is constantly forming new connections and neural pathways, creating a myriad of new possibilities. Even in the face of unexpected changes, my brain is resilient, always shining bright. Throughout, illustrations are subtly etched on their respective lobes representing what was lost and what was gained as a result of my injury.
The Brain Project is large-scale outdoor exhibit that brings brain health, art and imagination to the streets of Toronto. I’m delighted to be one 1 of 100 artists from around the world selected to transform a blank brain sculpture into a thought-provoking piece of art. Funds raised through the project will be donated to Baycrest for care, research and education into dementia and brain health.
If you would like to contribute to the Brain Project you can do so directly at brainproject.ca . As a token of my appreciation, I will give you a piece of my brain! (a collection of picture postcards of Change is Beautiful).
