Secondary Response is a personal project focusing on the memory loss that my dad was affected by after suffering from a subarachnoid haemorrhage and stroke in 2015. The memory loss was one of the biggest side effects of the illness and the recovery of his short-term memory was slow and continues to affect his day-to-day life. This work represents the fragility of the mind and memories symbolized by freezing some of my dad's personal objects that represent him and freezing flowers to epitomize life and the different emotions that we experienced because of his illness. The ice is symbolic of memories - the foggier the ice, the more clouded his memory is and freezing his memories in time.
