What's in a thought?

What do people think? A question that always hunts me when I look around.
The exhibition requires interaction by people visiting the cafe gallery, they are viewers and part of the installation by adding thoughts to my cartoons in addition to my own drawn thoughts.

About

WHAT'S IN A THOUGHT?

Thought /θɔːt/ noun

1. an idea or opinion produced by thinking, or occurring suddenly in the mind.

2.the action or process of thinking.

Drawing is an impulsive act for me, as a thought, it expresses a moment in time capturing everything around it. By combining the two things, drawings and curiosity about thoughts, I hope to engage visitors to the café in more ways than just a viewing experience.

My exhibition comprises several "thoughts" in different installations:

Shared thoughts

People who visit the Café Deli Felice can contribute to this collective piece of artwork of many shared thoughts. Each person was asked to share an anonymous thought with the only limitation of being respectful. The display changes so new thoughts are added and other vanish as in our mind.

Manipulated thoughts

Advertisement plays with our minds telling us what's good or bad for us, luring us to buy or shaping our thoughts to like one brand or another. A simple smiley sticker can distort that interference with our thoughts 

A smiley for your thought

How do you feel today? Do we always say what we really think? This work ask people to say how they feel by placing a smiley sticker on headless drawings

Think big Thoughts

Though originally I intended to paint two large canvases in the exhibition, I replaced that idea by displays that will change during the exhibition period; drawings that express emotions therefore the large size expresses the intensity of that thought

Bag a thought

A series of paper bags expressing their own thoughts

The exhibition is an organic event that will change with thoughts being added or large cartoons being swapped by other
