Inspired by cross-sections of the brain, this sculpture maps its three main territories. The neocortex, limbic system and reptilian complex are each represented by a sea of accurately placed words associated with their individual functions. Fertile ground runs along the bottom. A snake, a human and a figure in the clouds personify the three main territories.
