QUANTUM OF TIME
Struck down by the Guillain-Barré Syndrome I was paralysed from the neck downwards. During weeks of immobility I began to undergo a series of surreal experiences that led to the desire to record the event. As a coping measure, I employed self-hypnosis and began to access my Freudian unconscious where all sorts of repressed feelings were stored. The MFA Photography degree has been my response. In creating this work, I have achieved a major degree of catharsis. The past is no longer a problem. Additional Information: The artwork is presented in 3D and backlight using LED panels and Japanese Kozo paper.
