Loops, by Stephen Nelson

I like loops. And I like series. So make a series of loops and there's a high probability I'm going to find something to like about it.

These 6 pieces by Stephen Nelson remind me of the mind of me and the way ideas emerge, submerge, merge, remerge and demerge. They also call to mind brain scans I've seen, and turbulence maps, too.

Of course, I can't say if this is how you see the I of your mind's eye, but I would remind you that humans should have a natural affinity for the torus, after all, the human body itself is one.
