Inspired by the
Russian-American poet Joseph Brodsky’s essay“In Praise of Boredom,” as well as by the neuroscientific concepts
of the default-mode network and undirected thought, this project unfolds around
What if boredom is
a transient form of an undirected thought?
And what if undirected
thought is a natural, default state of the human mind?
The final work is comprised of videos, doodles, and
sounds, created in a state of undirected thinking (boredom, mind-wandering, and
daydreaming) and offering a visual metaphor for the fluidity of representations
and the contingency of processes.
