Body of Work






The Silent Gap Between My Lungs and My Lover (2014)

A 60 page visual diary composed of words, illustrations and photographs. The work is an attempt to articulate the sensations which exist between the physiological mechanisms I was memorising during my studies of human biology.

Learning the structure and function of the body, I still did not understand the purpose of the emotion which is so clearly felt within its physicality. The Silent Gap Between My Lungs and My Lover was a way to contemplate the complexity and inherent subjectivity of learning about the body through a body, as well as the impact that other bodies had on my own.

The work focuses on the in-betweens of these transactions through collaging images, illustrations and photographs. Through the process, creating a mind map which draws together these aspects without purposeful conclusion.
