After a lucky sneak peek at Science Gallery’s MENTAL exhibition in 2021, the SIGNAL Curators group were inspired to step into scientist mode and gather some empirical data. We wanted to understand more about how different young people in our community relate to their internal world of feelings. We sent a carefully thought-out survey to our peers, in order to peer into their minds and hear what certain emotions feel, look, smell, taste and sound like.
Where do our feelings live? Where do they go when we’re done feeling them? If an emotion were like a meal, what ingredients would it be made of? How do we navigate the connection between our bodies, minds and emotions? Big Amygdala Energy (B.A.E) is a digital and print zine that riffs on these and other questions. SIGNAL Curators offer twelve responses by twelve emerging artists, drawing on their individual brain power, and inspired by a hive mind of peers: SIGNAL’s creative network of young people, and the SciCurious crew.
Step into the organised chaos of our synaptic pathways as we unpack the messy intricacies of emotion and sensation.
