Cognitive dissonance

Cognitive dissonance
Here is one of my new pieces of wall art. It is called Cognitive Dissonance.
 
This is the perception of contradictory information where your head and heart may be telling you different things. This is displayed in the artwork by the maze between the two areas.
 
Although some people may think cognitive dissonance is a bad thing, it actually helps to keep us mentally healthy and happy.
 
It may make us feel satisfied with our choices—or at least lets us justify them—especially when they cannot be easily reversed.
 
Resolving dissonance may help prevent us from making bad choices or motivate us to make good ones. This desire to be at peace with our decisions might be just the thing to inspire us.
 
Not just ‘a picture’ then!
