The Dementia series was inspired by dementia and Alzheimer's patients, some of them being my closest family. Personal contact with them and their carers, backed by additional research on this degenerative condition has led me to creating imagery which attempts to illustrate the cognitive process in dementia patients. On the one hand I focused on the patient's impaired reasoning and overwhelming confusion which may pose their physical health at risk. On the other hand, I aimed to present an altered reality that has been formed in their minds by misleading perception and fragmentary memories. Clean compositions and genuine looking composite objects in these conceptual images were intended to draw undivided attention to a different world in which dementia patients live.
