Science and photography are intrinsically linked. At the same time the adequateness of photography to explain scientific concepts is debatable. This is linked to photography's true representational nature, its indexical link. However photography can help to explain this enclosed world. 'Aporia' examines drugs reaction with bodily fluids. Drugs taken to treat the symptoms of M.E. are mixed with blood and saliva samples from a person diagnosed with the illness. Mould and Bactria are grown from these samples. Through the use of camera-less photography the growth is documented over a period of time. The work examines the contradictory nature of M.E. as well as the contradictory nature of photographic practice.
