What's In Your Head?

Transcendental Acres

"What's In Your Head?" is a 3D multimedia sculpture made from reclaimed metal, wire, and empty pill bottles. This piece embodies much of the feelings caused by mental illness. It's a tangled mess of wire and melted metal, recovered from a barn that burned down several years ago. It mirrors the chaos we often feel internally. The exterior is comprised of upcycled pill bottles, donated from several people, many of whom suffer from mental illness themselves. The photos and video show the progress of the piece so far; this is a work in progress that will be completed over the summer.
