Storyboard of Thoughts: Using Photography and Illustration to Visualize the Mind
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2018.14.HVEI-540  Published OnlineJanuary 2018

What does the artist see that non-artists don't? What aspects of the seen and the unseen yield the essence of creative artistic invention? In the art world where a single, preselected polished work is introduced under the glow of anticipated presentation, the progressive search for that decisive moment displayed is seldom demonstrated. Taking a body of mixed media and photographic work as the initial point of departure to understand idea emergence and resulting representation, I present and discuss the visual stages of my own multidisciplinary creative process while in pursuit of questions and answers about the mind/brain. From literal, spherical, abstract, and squared to soft, harsh, sensual, and reflective, I reveal the explicit and implicit layered connections I make as a polymath Artist-Scientist between disciplines, history, artistic styles, visual perception, emotion, and form – the vast information networks that underlie our human experience.
