Chartwell Survey Book, ink
This artist book is created within a Chartwell Survey Book 2026.
The book is a log of intrusive thoughts, imagined ways in which I might die, as recorded on various days.
Intrusive thoughts are frightening thoughts about what might happen to you or someone you care about, or what you might do to yourself or another person. They seem to come from outside of your control, and their content feels alien and threatening.
The yellow survey book serves as a container to these threatening scenarios, recording the rise and fall of mental health.
This work was exhibited in the Sheffield International Artist’s Book Prize exhibition at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield from Oct 7-31, 2015
