Brainstorm drawings by Núria Vives (Xirana)
brainstorm A sudden and powerful thought; a good idea. The concept of forcefulness contained in the storm element seems to be losing ground to that of disorder and chaos, so that brainstorm is now most often used ironically to mean a whimsical or ill-considered notion, a stupid idea.
I let drawings appear freely on the paper. I try to shape some of them, others seem to shape themselves inside the ‘disorder and chaos’. Are they the product of mental activity? Maybe they simply appear by chance and then the mind recognises something in them and that’s why I keep them… ‘a whimsical or ill-considered notion, a stupid idea’…yes, probably they are…but so is my mind when trying to understand our World.
