Cognition is a perception of the present. A variety of stimuli such as bodily senses, thoughts, emotions, and impulses are imposed upon us simultaneously. Internal experience affects the physical traits of observational artwork. Using sculpture as a means to study their relationship reveals the qualities of cognition.     

 

As someone with Attention Deficit ‘Disorder’ (ADHD), I aim to spread awareness and empathy for people who perceive differently. Recording cognition with art puts the power back into the hands of the individual. The result is a departure from appointed stigmas of mental diversity. Top sites informing about ADHD frame symptoms with a limited perspective and negative connotation.
