I came to the RCA so that I could have 2 years to process loss…to dig, organise, and explore my personal archive of photos, writing, things like that. To work alongside and with people in an academic, process / practice driven environment.
To have someone ask me what my practice is. These 2 years have been exactly that and I am thankful. It feels really good. My practice is rooted in storytelling and narrative building, and then finding an appropriate medium.
So far, those have been writing, scanning, printing, and film-making. I don’t know if I’ll make another film, but I had to make this one. I wanted to tell this story with my mom - of her diagnosis, of our relationship, and they way we communicate. Most importantly, I wanted to work on it with her so that she knows how much her words matter to me.
