Below is a list of my past and ongoing projects. More information and images for each can be found by clicking on the title.
A series of intuitive sketches spanning 2015-present, documenting my experience of living with and healing from ‘severe and complex’ mental health conditions.
An immersive multimedia installation using imagery from the My Life As Art Intuitive Sketch Series, displayed in an enclosed space and viewed while listening to a 3D Binaural Audio soundscape that reproduces some of my intrusive negative thoughts and voices. The overall aim of the piece was to allow people who had not experienced mental health difficulties to get a better understanding of what it is like through immersive, experiential learning. There was also an interactive element; viewers were invited to respond to the piece either in writing or by attempting to use the intuitive art process themselves to produce a response. Images of the installation itself as well as of the audience responses (good, bad and simply confusing) will be shared here as they are gathered.
A mishmash of my thoughts, experiences, philosophical meanderings and so on. Some of these were written to explain (or were inspired by) pieces in the My Life As Art series. Where this is so, the image is included alongside the writing.
