CREATOR: Helena McGill
A recent trip to the Anza-Borrego desert revealed this view, which evokes a visual similar to that of the inner surface of the brain. These two desert washes diverge to create two different pathways that have been etched into the side of the mountain range, much like the gyrus and sulcus grooves of the brain. This duality also exists at a mental level, where traumatic events can be construed in ways that alter the original perception.
Helena McGill is a senior pursuing a degree in Film Production and Psychology. She is interested in abstract photography, and how visual imagery can evoke emotion and connect to psychological processes.
