Einstein's Brain 

sewn wool on bubblewrap, mounted on wallpaper

38 x 54 cm

​

After he died, Einstein's brain was seen as a valuable scientific resource and removed by the pathologist Thomas Harvey. The brain was preserved and cut into over 200 segments, some of which have been studied (in different locations) to compare with other human brains.

The artwork began with this theme and although initially intended as a more literal piece, the texture of the bubblewrap and wallpaper together began to resemble the brain surface.
