Beachcombing was instinctive and reminiscent of childhood and home. The act of searching the shore for shells and the impulse to pick up these objects was natural, but only ones I felt a fascination or curiosity about. As I accumulated my collection of shells, I found myself beginning to organise each one, forming individual patterns and orderly lines, leading to the creation of arranged displays. This process would repeat: searching, gathering, cleaning, categorising, arranging, positioning. This activity becomes one of escape, time I have allocated for myself; it becomes a way of dealing with my skin condition. Curios takes form in both image and video, showing both the process of collecting and the finished arranged displays.
