Mapping 1_Oxygen. Case study: Cellular Dysfunction.
Science Photographer of the Year 2019 Nomination.
Exhibition: Science Museum London 07 October 2019 to 05 January 2020.
Using landscape as a geomorphological vehicle for a final major project, Mapping1 and the image ‘Oxygen Ib’, is part of a journey into the little known research surrounding the condition Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E) creating a binary link between our internal human biological landscape and our external geological environment. It acts as a vessel to enlighten and consolidate research, explore emotions and help clarify the ambiguous, only where it is comfortable to be discussed.
Post Exertional Malaise
Drawing on my own experience and research discovered, I uncover Post-Exertional Malaise or PEM as it is more familiarly called. It is a description of the extreme exhaustion, pain, cognitive deficits and other symptoms that present after exertion in M.E patients with and extremely slow return to baseline. The return could be as long as one day weeks or months. It's as if the blood cells become frigid and the cellular function unable to process oxygen in the normal way. The sub-series ‘Oxygen’ is a representation of how illness travels through our bodies in a mapped and orderly way, unknown, however, as the symptoms are experienced one after the another in no particular order. Metaphorically the series intertwines the micro and the macro, the internal and external human landscape acting as a vessel to position the science in a certain time and place. The repetitive nature of the images reveals the constantly relapsing condition. The images are produced as if a scientific experiment catalogued for success or failure and reflected in the numbering. The abstraction removes the onerous requirement of controls and variables leaving space for subjective expression.

Mapping 1_Interoception. Case Study: Neurological Dysfunction.
Exhibition: Contemporary Art Expo Rome July 2019.
One aspect of my investigation looks at neurological Interoception in M.E sufferers. Interoception is considered to be The 8th Sense, a link between bodily sensation and emotional reactions. In recent decades the idea of how the body processes information and bodily sensations has created the idea of the experienced phenomenologically lived body as the basis of consciousness. Limited computational and cognitive theories suggests that the study of interoception remains enactive. In M.E sufferers when they become sick, the bodies ‘Sick Response’ is not temporary for the short period we are ill as it should be, but remains heightened, causing brain fog and delayed cognition. I explore interoception by photographing brain scans and brain responses when suffering post-exertional malaise following a short period of exercise.
