Original Light Herder Header and Sculpture Concept (2010)

...This is like opening up the brain, poking around, and trying to find the mind or soul. These things grow through iterations, through cycles that start small and flourish, and can't be seen once they are gone (or the screen has gone blank). Imagine a dark room where the camera is looking at a dark screen. It will stay dark this way forever (no life, no soul) until a 'spark of life' (say the lighting of a match) brings forth an image, which will then perpetuate itself on and on. But, then imagine something blocking the camera's view of the screen, just for an instant. All of a sudden, the image goes out (death), never to return exactly as it was. To me, this is what the mind is, just a complex pattern."
