For this piece I've adopted a new (for me) process of needle felting to create a dense, entangled material reminiscent of a complex network of neurones. The material flows over the constraints of the embroidery hoop to evoke the infinite capabilities of the brain.
'Grey matter contains most of the brain's neuronal cell bodies. The grey matter includes regions of the brain involved in muscle control and sensory perception such as seeing and hearing, memory, emotions, speech, decision making, and self-control. While 20% of all oxygen taken in by the body goes to the brain, 95% of that goes specifically into the grey matter.'
