By looking at how neurons and nervous system is built up, I wanted to create a work that reflects the same complexity. I deliberately want to challenge the viewer visually in the sense that things should not be immediately tangible. There should be some resistance, something to strive for, an element of surprise and a sense of empowerment.
The goal was to create a work that the main users (children) can grow with over time and hopefully be able to discover new things and be able to read the work in a new context the older you get, and through the new knowledge which is acquired during the course period.
The title "thousand million billions" is the amount of possible conections (thousand million trillion in english XXXX) is the average amount of possible connections neurons can have in a human body.
