Essence of The Heart: My Story
Pine, Copper, Twine
3′ x 3′ x 4′

Nicole Scott’s artistic practice is focused on using sculpture to represent the different functions and systems found within the human body. Nicole is currently using a method of interweaving copper wire and woodworking, to create a sculptural representation of the vascular system. Essence of The Heart represents a portion of the vascular system that includes the arm/hand and connects to Nicole’s battle with Essential Tremors. This neurological disorder causes involuntary and rhythmic shaking that occurs most often in the hands and affects Nicole’s fine motor skills/artistic practice. Since Nicole’s neurological condition can be influenced by her vascular health, her sculpture’s purpose is to illustrate how separate systems influence each other and have complex relationships inside the body. This is Nicole’s story.
