Stitch Your Brain celebrates it's 10th anniversary in 2023. It is a unique long-term study into the intelligence of the hand, mapping the correlations between creativity, hand and brain. The results of the ongoing hybrid project between Art and Science will be published by JAP SAM BOOKS in spring 2023.
In 2021 during a residency in Nykobing, Denmark 'Stitch Your Brain' was taken up by the local artist's group Kunstnerfløjen. The group has studios in a former psychiatric institution, Annebergparken. There, until the 1960's the brains of deceased patients were removed without consent of their families and sent in a wooden box to the pathological institute. The remains were buried at the Brainless Graveyard. Bringing back the brains through Stitch Your Brain project expanded into a still growing Danish collection of 70+ works. The national newspaper POLITIKEN and Danish medical journal reported. The works were on show until October 2022. At the finnissage results of the study and a pre-view were presented. The book will be published by JapSamBooks in spring 2023.
