The Idea Incubator Brain or “Thinkubator”

This piece by artist Ted Hamer explores the idea of a brain as an idea incubator. Often when coming up with an idea, Hamer will collect inspiration and let it incubate in his mind for a time.

The bird symbolizes the idea that has been developed through the process of incubation with the brain and nest working together to develop the “thinkubation.”
