INTO A DANGEROUS MIND

Into a dangerous mind a contemporary illustration project designed to illustrate the way in
which a psychopath’s mind works and traits that psychopaths have. It is designed to educate
people that no psychopath is easily identified. They could look you and I. Hence why the
design is made to look like myself. Inside the head is a brain which shows the parts of the
brain which have been scientifically proven to use a huge amount of less activity when it
comes to certain situations involving morally correct actions, empathy, remorse, and
emotions in general. The amygdala, (lit with red lights) located in the centre of the brain is
the part of the brain which is thought to be a part of the limbic system which is responsible
for emotions, survival instincts, and memory. Also, the frontal lobe (lit with green lights)
which controls problem solving, spontaneity, memory, language, initiation, judgement,
impulse control, and social and sexual behaviour. Other aspects that make up psychopathic
behaviour such as manipulation and murder are also shown inside the sculpture. And all
wire within the way these dangerous minds work.
