Mirror Neurons is an ongoing series on paper created by transferring paint and ink between the hard surface of panels onto the forgiving texture of paper. The mirror neuron system (MNS) has been proposed to play an important role in social cognition by providing a neural mechanism by which others’ actions, intentions, and emotions can be understood. I became interested in this area as part of my larger body of work about perception and interrelationships between humans and their environment.
