When considering the theme of flowing inspiration, I began to wonder - Where do ideas come from? How do they start?

When we are stimulated, sensory inputs drive electrical signals in the brain. Each Neuron is connected to a network of other Brain cells creating complex neural networks.

I was inspired by the fascinating shapes of the neuron and how it transmits information through electrical and chemical signals.

The work Neural Nature has roots to spread and make connections with the forest. The roots (neurites) encircle the cell with a dynamic motion and create a sense of movement and energy around the cell nucleus.

The Nucleus can be climbed inside to rest, contemplate and create your own inspirational thoughts and pass on your energy to the network.

The work is created from bamboo and woven into a structure of welded steel bar.
