'Slip of the Mind'
My practise has focused upon exploring my experience with Alzheimer's disease and coming to terms with seeing a beloved family member lose what makes their identity. I have been experimenting with using video, as a way to show the progressive effects of Alzheimer's disease. The aim of the work is made under on initiative. To allow a way for people to understand and empathise, through visually seeing the changes and the confusion created by Alzheimer's. Through this work I have used the memories of my own Gran's fall and passing due to Alzheimer's as the main source of research. I want to focus on the human being suffering from Alzheimer's through representation of who they were. Not to focus on the disease.
