For the interim show, Steve has used a combination of physical and digital media to produce a self-portrait series examining his experience with chronic pain. Through this work, he constructs his own narrative of living with pain from a neurodivergent perspective that celebrates the positive while honoring the negative.

GETTING LOST IN A MAZE OF ORANGE TREES
A playful yet disorienting journey inside the body: merging digital, organic, human, and non-human. The focus is on the possibilities related to a new understanding of matter. Time allows processes to happen, and empathy starts to create a connection between them and what is human.

‘Dreams of Rooms’
As we endured one lockdown after the other, I could not travel anymore. I started to photograph inside an apartment in Salzburg, Austria. Inspired by the book: The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard, I put the work together according to some of the chapters he describes. I also put a special emphasis on daydreaming.
‘Deciphering Diagrams’ is an interactive website combining pattern, text and optical illusion to describe the journey of a person trapped inside the event horizon of a black hole. Lauren’s research interests are Astrophysical, designing sculptures that could survive extreme circumstances.

Holly Moore’s work has a strong focus on narrative, and elements of construction are always present in her photography in the form of collage, set builds or photo-manipulation.
She is inspired by storytelling, space and the suburban environment at night, and the mystery and intrigue that is often found there.
These images are taken from an ongoing project, currently titled “When ELIZA met PARRY”. It explores the usage of AI in psychiatry, and the disquiet induced by both computational and traditional approaches to diagnosis and treatment. Small high-chromatic polymer clay sculptures depict the nerve structures in tractography brain scans. Photographed, then reworked, these simulate the fallibilities of machine and human perception.
