Motion sickness commonly occurs when one's body, inner ear and eyes send conflicting signals to the brain, this imbalance of signals results in motion sickness. Coming from a family of bus and taxi drivers, having motion sickness seemed fairly ironic. Photographing residual marks and objects which I was both entranced and nauseated with, I was able to show a transient journey and my abstracted viewpoint. The work endeavours to transcend the physicality of motion sickness, and become more universally applicable. It therefore aims to express various emotions such as fear, anxiety, discomfort and nausea. The ambiguity of this work allows viewers to question the origin of these residual markings, allowing a sense of presence and involvement within the images.
