Pampling’s Mind Blowing

Mind Blowing by Tobiasfonseca finds success through combining two very recognizable images, the human brain and the mushroom cloud of a nuclear explosion. It’s a choice that works because the dome of the brain is so similar to that of the eruption, and the trunk of the explosion starts to feel like an extension of the brain stem. While in life the difference in textures and colors make the two objects very dissimilar, reducing the piece to one color solves the issue and the artist’s choice to balance the top of the cloud with a chaotic cratering effect at the bottom does well to ground the piece and unite the two halves. It’s a clever idea executed very skillfully.
