“Corpus Callosum” is a site-specific project including a mixed media installation and a single channel video, which reveals the challenges of the dual roles as an artist and arts administrator from the lens of Physiology. The two roles demand different sides of the brain that are distinctly specialized between verbal thinking vs. visual thinking, logic vs. creativity, and analysis vs. imagination. Therefore, I apply the Corpus Callosum, the part of the mind that controls communication and transmits neural messages between the two hemispheres of the brain, as the subject of this project. I will utilize the wall between the admin office and the gallery space in Gallery 456 to imply the function of the Corpus and reveal the challenges of balancing the two hemispheres of the brain.
