Artist's Insight:
My insight of my life perpetually changed with the announcement of my paternal grandmother’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis when I was in my early teenage years. I often question if moments of my wandering ideas, my forgetfulness, or even my clouded thoughts are hints of what it would be like to be infected with the disease. During these times of daydreaming I repeatedly visualize my brain floating above my head, not attached to my body, suggesting a complete disconnect of mind-to-body function similar to the disease’s symptoms.
