The second room was painted orange in its totality (floor, walls, and ceiling). I created a room-sized 'mind map' on all walls during a period of two weeks (see also my installation 'messy mind map'). The visitor could not only read through my associations on the wall, but experience a particular function of the brain - the brain tries to balance between cold and warm light, if a lot of warm light gets through the human eye, looking aside we see a blue layer on top of everything else we see. After reading the white text on the orange background the visitor looks at the white styrofoam balls (#1) which are looking blue for a fraction of time.
