Sorry for your loss art- Goldsmiths College

Introduction The shape created in collaboration with colleagues, made me think of a mausoleum or what an elaborate gravestone might look like. The act of projecting into the shape evoked reflections on how we project onto funereal artefacts our changing emotions. Each scene represents a stage of grief, namely shock, denial, overwhelming emotions including anger, bargaining, acceptance and finally adaptation. The projection installation was accompanied by the 'Wreaths' series of paintings, which alongside inspiration from Isaac Julien and Damien Hirst provided the visual inspiration. Concept and background research In approaching this piece, I reflected on my own losses, past and more recent.
