dc.description.abstractThis thesis is a reflection on an experience that I had in a bathtub in 2013 and the following four years of self-introspective research into how my brain works. The left-brain interpreter portion of the human brain relates experience to the conscious mind through storytelling. Stories play an integral role in understanding how to navigate our world. The brain's self-censoring executive functioning operates on the stories we tell ourselves. Metacognitive awareness can result in the mind releasing from storytelling to find a place between stories. This experience is familiar to all of us who have come out of a movie theater to find ourselves caught between the story of an engaging movie and the story of our own lives. I call these experiences between stories epistory intervals. Epistory intervals can be rejuvenating breaks from the authority of thought. Installation art is an adaptable platform that can allow for the exploration of a variety of mental states because of its exploratory nature, self-reflective capacity and lens of inquiry.en
