"Everything we do, including driving a car, cooking dinner or laughing at jokes, are based on our memories.  Until recently, scientists believed that our thought patterns are pretty much fixed at childhood.  But the latest research shows that our brains are like plastic, and new thought patterns can form and we can literally 'change our brains'.  For both these works I used vintage photographs inside a portrait.  These smaller pictures form part of the pixels making up the image, translating individuality.  I am fascinated with the way memories become patterns of behaviour and how that interacts with the formation of pathways in our brains."
