32 Brains
(2018)
Influenced by semiotics and an exploration of language that is familiar and normalised, leading to micro hierarchies within contemporary society. Focusing on the stigma associated with residents of social housing in the UK, it is a critical reflection of lived and researched experiences in an era of poverty porn. Semiotics and visual aesthetics are juxtaposed with the harsh reality of living with stigma.
