Personal Experimentation-Collage

As well as experimenting with video, I am also continuously taking photos to coincide with the videos that I produce. As previously mentioned, the combination of both the body and nature is a running theme throughout my work. The images above show a literal combination of the two things, experimenting with the idea of collage.

Ripping up the images and putting them back together is a representation of how it feels living with mental health – falling apart whilst trying to hold it together. The overlaying of the flower images not only shows the role nature plays with helping with mental health, but acts as a symbolism, representing what it is like to live with a mental illness.

The flower within the top images are not my images, however the other two are. If I was to carry on with this idea I would produce images for the collage myself.
