Habitat Print

Having been invited to participate in a fundraising exhibition, I was briefed to produce a handmade print based on the word Habitat. I got to thinking about my own personal habitat:
I'm an introvert.
I spend a lot of time in my own head; thinking of ideas, dreaming up stories, and imagining concepts and experiences.
I was inspired by Porter Robinson to create a piece that provokes readers to consider their internal world.
We are shaped by our individual experiences, stories we were inspired by as children, the narratives we encounter across our lifetime.
But how to communicate this visually?
I noticed an awesome similarity between the neural pathways of the brain and photos of the intergalactic web of galaxies in the observable universe.
Using brush sprays, I created a pattern that blurred the boundaries between the two, and utilized brushstroke imagery of the Zen Buddhist ensō; a symbol representing freedom of mind and enlightenment.
Every place you've ever imagined;
It's real.
There is a fictional city in your mind, and you know every part of it.
Your mind is a world, each of us is a place.
