Brainstrips

"The three works that make up Brainstrips are, like much of Bigelow's work, highly-concentrated, intricately-designed visual and audio experiences, often using assets culled from the internet. Just when these works appear to veer into parody or outright whimsy, questions of some genuine gravity are broached which anchor the pieces in some very serious questions of philosophy, art and society. You are never quite sure which of these hot-button topics Bigelow is aiming for at first. 'Higher Math,' one discovers, employs the tropes of numbers and equations as a foil for the emotions, while 'Science for Idiots' is more about the politics of science - who are the 'idiots'? - than science itself. 'Deep Philosophical Questions' makes of the comic book panel a stand-in for all structural frames as they effect/affect our artistic and narrative perceptions." -- from Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 2
