All The Better To See You With

I have recently been making a set of small studies based on the variations in my mental state of mind juxtaposed with childhood fears and the fears associated with being a mother.

Fading Memory

For the last few years my work has predominantly been concerned with social media and life documenting. In contrast I have recently found my interest reaching toward the distorted memories that a life spent documenting our daily life events creates. I have begun to create work that plays with real fragments of memories, or at least real to me: and if changed or distorted it is only through the naturally ageing brain rather than the memory having been enhanced to begin with.

I am particularly excited by the stirring of a long forgotten moment, triggered by something seemingly unrelated. I recently walked into a room and a structure in the corner reminded me of an aviary. I then remembered that I often visited the aviary in Sefton Park, Liverpool during weekends with my grandparents.
