All these things, videos, the internet... I’m really interested in how they connect the brain and the heart. Right now, I’m reading a book called Musicophilia by Oliver Sachs, about the brain and its connections with music : people who see colours, the links between nature and the mind. It’s like David Attenborough, who I love, love, love – that curiosity, the big heart behind finding how things work. The best bit of it is when Oliver Sachs says about free jazz linking with Tourettes – that appealed to my sense of humour ! And another book I read called The Alphabet and the was about myth and language, all sorts, it mixed together science and human stuff. I like books and art that have that kind of optimism about connecting things. I think that’s very important., April 9 2008
