Today I left the left side of the brain on a stool.

Staple Brain, Philip JarvisPhilip Jarvis

Philip Jarvis’s staple sculpture, “Today I left the left side of the brain on a stool”, was a finalist in the 2016 Woollahra Small Sculpture Award, Sydney, Australia.

Philip says:

Today I left the left of my brain on a stool.

I left it there because all my life I’ve had it talking at me, for me and about me.

What was happening in the past, what is going to happen in the future.

To procrastinate over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

God I’m sick of it.

I want
I want my mind
I want my mind to expand
I want my mind to expand to new neverland.
