how am I meant to feel about this? - 2020
Inspired by the architectural features from the 1988 film Akira, I've created this digital illustration that incorporates two emotions I feel regularly due to my BPD - chronic emptiness (represented by the empty road and spotlight) and unstable sense of sadness.
bpd is calling - 2021

why - 2021
Using negative space to spell out out a message of 'why?' is a commentary on the government's handling of NHS resources and funding. I'm asking why, through a city with no personable features - similar to how I think the government sees the wider public;:as statistics; utilises monotonous decision making; and lack of personalisation and individual case-setting. This has stemmed from my experience as working as a COVID-19 vaccine operator, and witnessing first hand what lack of funding really does to people whom are vulnerable.
