ABOUT THE ARTIST: Alice is a Tutor at the University of Arts London and a Lecturer for The Art Society. Her octopus artworks celebrate the complexity of our brains and bodies. Did you know that:
‘A common octopus brain has 500m neurons, a “smartness” that ranks alongside a three-year-old child. But unlike a vertebrate’s, an octopus’s neurons are ranged through its entire body – including its arms, which act as “agents of their own” and sense by taste as much as touch. The octopus “lives outside the usual body/brain divide”. (The Guardian Review, Peter Hoare, 2017)
The theory that the mind can change comes as ‘really good news’ according to Alice.
“I love the idea that the mind can be celebrated in all its diversity: inclusive of the challenges and environmental pressures we encounter in life (underwater or on land). When I think of an octopus, I think of being buoyant; adapting the body and mind to cope with the fluctuations around me.’- Alice White
