Two toys made from wood and painted with acrylic. With both characters the top of the head comes off to reveal what the character is thinking about.
Based on the saying ‘open your mind’ and ‘I’ve changed my mind’ the idea is that you can control what they are thinking about, taking out the circular wood chip of a brain and replacing it with a different design such as a clock or the world.
We’ve done quite a few different designs for the circular chips including, a tyre, the sun, a clock, a brain, an eye ball, the world and an English breakfast. We wanted to play on the idea of people being told what to think.
