Graphic Design Year 2

A flower feels no pain
Having the freedom to experiment with mixed media throughout the entirety of this year has helped me further develop my style, guiding me towards fresh and inventive ways of creating. For my final project, I have embarked on a journey of self-discovery. Exploring my personal healing and growth, showing how my mind, body and soul has developed positively. I began by communicating the importance of self-care and self-acceptance through extensive amounts of research. I decided to showcase these emotions through dance and photography, inspired by Francesca Woodman and Martha Graham. As humans, we are able to understand emotions through body language including facial expression, posture and movement. To enable me to emotionally connect with an audience and tell my story I teamed up with a dancer to create meaningfully eerie images which I later began editing to fit my aesthetic.
