The Person I Once Was
We are born and we die, and somewhere in between we live, we feel, we thrive and we suffer. As humans we all age and long with ageing there is something we will all experience in life - pain. We can do all the ‘right’ things, pay attention to our lifestyle and eat the right foods but eventually time will prevail. Some of us will age gracefully and if we are lucky, we get to keep in tact on our dignity and overall independence. However some of us are not so fortunate and pain is very much real and is a huge part of living.
This project works with people who have had significant life changing incidents who I live locally too in my community. Wether its losing a leg, being wheel chair bound, having dementia or having a stroke. This project explores the world in which these people live while reflecting on the person they used to be.
