The brain is one of the most complex and delicate organs in the human body that functions as a homebase: why not actively engage and maintain its level of health? It is always engaged in personal thought and body movements, but not always challenged. When considering healthy lifestyle choices to increase our chances of living a longer life, individuals have a habit of only considering their physical health and exclude their brain. Maintaining a balanced diet and athletic lifestyle do help in ‘brain health’, but just this alone is not enough. Research has shown that actively challenging the brain can lead to the delay of mental disabilities such as Alzheimer's. There are simple ways to challenge the brain and this is what the exhibition of Brekhmos aims to accomplish: educate the viewer about the brain and call upon them to challenge their own brain. This exhibition space invites the audience to challenge what they know about the brain and their perspective on maintaining its health. What is known about the brain now is completely different from what the majority of the human population knows to be true. I want to educate and bring to light the concept of the unconscious mind. I hope the people who participate in my exhibition leave with the feeling of growth and expansion in their understanding of how their own brain works.
