Recently David Eagleman's Incognito - the Secret Life of the Brain inspired some new lingo to my vocabulary - zombies and bots [as in robots]. In my art, I often explore the patterns, reactions, old hurts and wounds that sometimes [ha- often!] get 'the keys to the car' and take me down a highway I didn't intend. Zombies and Bots refer to these unconscious things that are wired in the brain and often direct traffic when we're not looking [can't get away from those driving metaphors today]. Kids, we're just not in control the way we like to think we are.
