After losing her eldest sister to an asthma attack, Kate explores the different triggers and symptoms of the respiratory illness. Suffering from asthma herself she uses sculpture and photography to paint the subject in a more settling and calming light to overcome the fear of having no control over your own body. Baby's breath, also known as Gypsophila is a flower that plays a key role in the work because nature and pollen can cause a reaction. This flower also has a chemical compound named Saponin that is found in photographic film. Kate takes her outlook of asthma and uses the medium of photography as a therapeutic revelation on how one shouldn't live in fear or it could consume you.
