Limbic Memory



In stock

This work was developed as part of a public art commission proposal exploring the neuroscience of memory for a dementia ward at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. It represents the hippocampus, fornix and mammillary bodies that sit near the centre of the brain and process memory. This is called the Limbic system, hence the title of the work Limbic Memory.

I was struck by how the shape represents a funnel curving around from the hippocampus (the part that is enlarged in London black cab drivers) to the two hanging mammillary bodies. This funnel shape mirrors the function of memory processing, how we filter down the sensory input of an experience to the essentials that we lay down as a memory.
