PROJECT STATEMENT :
Mapping1, explores how having a multidisciplinary background brings cohesiveness and meaning to my work as both a scientist and a photographic artist. I’ve intended for this project and for future ones that I will create a series of Mapping projects that will be mapped along a timeline of memory points, each acting as a point of reference, that if isolated could be singular projects and on bringing them together make a coherent and plausible story of events. This first project focuses on the current UK research on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, a hidden condition and an attempt to highlight the research through a balance of playful aesthetics and methodologies.
Ultimately, I hope for artistic outcomes that support scientific research into disease areas, and provide opportunity for further understanding of the unknown, art-science collaborations driving the inertia for these projects. By mapping different scientific disciplines, I hope to deconstruct what’s complex and highlight the internal inconsistencies shown through multidisciplinary pairs. I explore if these pairs work as binaries and are dependent one upon the other
Art Science Collaborations were completed with the support of the following Institutions:
Clinical Imaging and Sciences Centre, Brighton
Quadram Institute of Biosciences, Norwich
London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London.
International Invest in ME Conference IIMEC14
A big thank you to all the institutions, companies and individuals that have worked with me and supported the development of 'Mapping1' as the final major project for my MA Photography, Falmouth University.
