Walking in My Mind is published concurrently with an exhibition of the same name, for which London's Hayward Gallery is envisioned as a "giant brain," whose neural pathways the public can inhabit and traverse. Packed with photographs of large-scale installations (some of which are newly commissioned) by ten influential contemporary artists--Charles Avery, Thomas Hirschhorn, Yayoi Kusama, Bo Christian Larsson, Mark Manders, Yoshitomo Nara, Jason Rhoades, Pipilotti Rist, Chiharu Shiota and Turner Prize-winner Keith Tyson--this volume explores the ways in which an artist's mind processes and pictures information to itself, revealing the very foundations of creative functioning. Comprising diverse media, including drawing, painting, video and sculpture, these installations reflect a range of thought processes, from the meditative to the chaotic. The volume includes working plans and in-progress drawings by participating artists, as well as texts by curators Stephanie Rosenthal and Mami Kataoka, psycholgist Susan Blackmore and a piece of short fiction and texts by writer and UK editor of Cabinet magazine, Brian Dillon.
