Losing Home, Losing Self

lonely dad.jpegWork created for my final year project for my Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Losing Home, Losing Self is visual exploration of the impact on self identity when moving into Residential Aged Care Facilities.  Breaking the connection or attachment to home, can cause a person to lose their sense of identity and self confidence which can result in depression and a feeling of hopelessness.

The work pictured was created using a combination of photography and band aids onto the back of an old work invoice.
