Creature of Habit
‘Creature of Habit’ explores the small details that we don't notice. These images capture gestures in action showing the subtle nature of them, but how prevalent they are every day. This vulnerable topic is important for reflection and encouraging conversations around our habits and presenting a new way to understand, relate and acknowledge human behavioural patterns in order to find similarities. Using myself as the subject allowed full control of communicating the personal interest in habits I notice amongst people. I specifically imitated the fidgety nature of a habit with the imperfected finish to compliment the imperfect creation of people. Accompanying this work is a moving image piece that brings the habits back to life for conscious thought.
