The Katharine Dowson 'My Soul' Glass Mind Looks Whimsically Wispy

Anatomical representations can become extremely difficult to create in eye-catching methods as so many depictions of the human body already exist, however, few designs make it past the highly set bar such as the Katharine Dowson 'My Soul' crystal brain sculpture.

This design is undoubtedly one of the most distinctive depictions of the human mind, as the intricacies of the brain were etched into the crystal glass using a laser. It is a representation of an MRI scan of the artist's brain. The Katharine Dowson 'My Soul' has opened up a new way in which the human anatomy can be interpreted in an almost see-through design. The brain looks as if wisps of thin smoke furled together in a coincidental flare and formed the brain. It will be shown as part of the Wellcome Collection's 'Brains' exhibition, which also includes a slice of Einstein's brain.
