See all 2019 brains in the pond at Nathan Phillips Square in July!
"The Worlds Within" refers to the capacity of our brain to create incredibly diverse concepts. It illustrates how the brain can imagine so many different worlds, to create new forms and new ideas - often from nothing - and to invent environments, stories and music to inspire humankind. This sculpture also represents the capacity of our brain to make connections, reflect, deduce, think, feel emotions and build meaningful relationships. As our point of view changes, so is what we see reflected in the sculpture. Thus the sculpture is always changing and evolving, like our thoughts and our brain.
