The Seven Seals
Our bodily cells replace themselves every seven years. This suggests that our lives enter different phases at similar intervals. These photograms use denominations of seven to explore and create a visual representation, and therefore an awareness, of biographical time - something that is often intangible in its expansive form. Concerned with the relationship between aesthetics, mental health, geometry and human biography, this work explores ideas around order and chaos in the universe and the human mind alike. The Seven Seals explores the threads of relationship between each year of life and the tension between having conscious awareness of the collective path of our biographical years, and not, while challenging our ideas of perfection both intrinsic and contrived.
