Force Field (amygdala)

Plaster, gilded brass
43.5 x 45 x 31.5 cm


Force Field (amygdala) visualises the energy meridians of the body as a form of armour. It is named after an organ located deep within the human brain, part of the limbic system, which is responsible for emotional learning and emotional memory. This sculpture is a life cast of my own body, which is encased in a golden armature. This metallic exoskeleton is inspired by the ritual coordinates of acupuncture meridians, and is a structure that maps the force field of healing energy.
