Brain Sculpture (2003)
Brain sculpture for Wells Park School
Wells Park is a residential school for 5 to 11 year olds with behavioural problems. The school is dedicated to learning so the idea of the project was to create a giant brain which contained the thoughts of all the children. The brain was made as a giant mobile from willow, foam and wire and was presented as if sliced into sections, revealing the different thoughts of the children.
