The Mind's Eye

The eye in this design represents the mind’s eye and allows the viewer to see into the mind of the artist. Two seahorses represent the hippocampus. Concentric rings with birds, fish, diamonds and petals well up and radiate from the centre, unfolding through highly charged brain squiggles. It is a snapshot of something that is constantly morphing and shifting, and the viewer can imagine new shapes and images that could emerge. The possibilities are as infinite and complex as the depths of the human mind. The artist says he wants to share something deep within himself, “which I believe all of humankind share, an organic Wi-Fi that connects everyone, all we need to do is turn on the switch…is yours on?”
