Description of “Brainstem”

Artist Statement

A large blue brainstem and pair of bloodshot eyes are loosely connected to an arc suggesting the enclosure containing areas of higher intelligence.

As the brainstem regulates our breathing, heart rate and blood pressure, it provides a reminder that despite our unique intelligence and presumed superiority, that we too are just creatures integral to the global ecosystems.
