Madness Becoming a Natural Object
My interest in the representation of Mental Health originates from our misunderstood history and the expansion of artists using their experiences to produce a physical representation of emotions. Mental Health can cause people to be stopped in their tracks of day-to-day tasks, this can be confusing for people who do not struggle or understand the disease. I created a theatrical stage for my objects to be displayed, these objects are replacements of my emotions. The random objects are to recreate the emotions that are invisible to anyone else, which can be hard to describe. The objects allow the viewer to relate to them, however once combined, the feelings of confusion steps in and then there is the question of reality.
