The three laser etched pieces shipped to the UK for the Thoughts Become Art exhibition mapped body parts as anatomical charts, redefining the emotions and actions of the heart, mind and hands of our bodies. Relabeling each of these structures allows us to imagine the magic that is possible within each of us. The heart becomes an organ that circulates love throughout the body, the brain holds various centers for emotions that bring positivity to ourselves and to others, and the hand is a creative tool with built-in intuitive sensory points.
When we imagine our bodies as vessels designed to create for the greatest good, we set up expectations for people on our planet to fulfill and exceed our fullest potential on earth. Remapping our bodies reminds us of that which is possible within ourselves.
