Our thinking, speaking and our body movements are very closely connect- ed and linked in our brains. Every time we use spatial metaphors while speaking and every time we think spatially, the area in our brain that controls our physical movements is also activated. This spatial thinking and speaking is very peculiar to each individual, through individual expe- rience and education, and determines how we move through space.


The project “Brain is sculpture” appeals to the plasticity of our brains. Four different training devices invite us to influence our thought patterns by repeating certain movements. Inspired by alternative movement therapy, in which human thought and behavior is divided into the four elements air, fire, earth and water, the four installations represent the corresponding movements up, forward, down and around.
