As my last CRJ for this MA Photography, Falmouth University, I leave you with a few links to my final work; MAPPING 1. The entire project, AUDIO & A REVIEW An introduction to the Project, A PROJECT STATEMENT. ,and the FINAL IMAGES of the Portfolio for this Final Major Project as it comes to its conclusion.
It has been a creative journey of visual exploration, defining and creating a portfolio in line with three scientific case studies at three scientific institutions. The journey has included investigating, revealing, testing and visually communicating the current UK research on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. It has included developing themes on 'ambiguity' and 'mapping', the inclusion of layering as landscape and the associated visual semantics. The various public outcomes include; a hand-made book, an artist talk, a lecture, an art exhibition in Rome, competitions, a review from a Sculptor and sufferer of M.E, personal audios, and a scientific conference. Commercial work and connections have been an important part of this project, building new contacts and connections for future work. Developing a network of contacts at various institutions, joining photography groups, working with researchers, clinicians, curators, photographers and sufferers of M.E has been an extraordinary experience. It has been a delight to work with them all and will form the basis of future art-science collaborations and 'Mapping Projects'.
I finish with an image nominated for Science Photographer of the Year. 2019. Mapping1; Oxygen Ib, which will be exhibited at the Science Museum, London. October 7th 2019 until January 5th 2020.
