“Trying to map the brain has always been cartography for fools. Most of the other parts of the body reveal their workings with little more than a glance. The heart is self-evidently a pump; the lungs are clearly bellows. But the brain, which does more than any other organ, reveals least of all. The 3-lb. lump of wrinkled tissue—with no moving parts, no joints or valves—not only serves as the mother board for all the body’s other systems but also is the seat of your mind, your thoughts, your sense that you exist at all. You have a liver; you have your limbs. You are your brain.”

C H E L S I E N U N N: Artist Statement 2011

 

Scientists are mapping the human brain. Connectomes, neural pathways, and brain circuitry are now visible in ways never before seen. Leading edge technology is blazing the trail to a fully developed map of the brain. With this new information, scientists may be able to achieve countless feats in neural medicine.

 

I am mapping human thought. Deadlines, songs, and eggs in a bowl are now visible in ways never before seen. Leading edge art processes are blazing the trail to a fully developed map of thought. With this new information, I may be able to achieve countless feats in metacognitive painting.

 

Together, science and art may construct a map of the brain that depicts neural pathways and the thoughts that travel them through color, form, and space. Let us make connections from thought to thought, brain to brain!
