About:

"Thoughts and memories, they constantly change and recreate themselves in a split of a second. At the root of all our thoughts, emotions and behaviors is the communication between nerve cells within our brains. Brainwaves are produced by synchronized electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other.  In an electroencephalogram, brainwaves are detected using sensors placed on the scalp and then recorded in paper. 

I like to think of these recordings as a tangible sample of what is happening inside our brains, our most private thoughts scribbled in a continuous web of blue fine lines.

In this piece, I connect fragile entities of my past bringing them back to life in a wearable object. By using this treasured recording of my daughter’s electroencephalogram, this piece holds a very strong embedded memory and energy not only in the material I used, but in its lengthy construction."
