OVERWRITTEN

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST PERSONAL PROJECTS I'VE EVER UNDERTAKEN, POETRY AND PRINT, IN RESPONSE DIARIES AND WRITING OF MY GRANDMOTHER'S (RECENTLY DECEASED AT THE TIME OF STARTING THE PROJECT) THAT I FOUND IN HER WRITING DESK. I WAS TIDYING THE DESK TO TAKE TO CORNWALL AFTER I DISCOVERED SHE'D GIVEN IT TO ME IN HER WILL. A MIXTURE OF PHOTOS AND DRAWINGS BLENDED INTO PRINTS AND DRAWINGS THAT I COMBINED TO CREATE A JOURNALISTIC BOOK OF MEMORY AND GRIEF. AS WELL AS HER WRITING DESK I INHERITED HER TYPEWRITER AND SPENT WEEKS TYPING OUT STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS POETRY THAT EVENTUALLY BECAME SOMETHING. AS PART OF THE PROJECT I ASKED MY MOTHER TO RESPOND TO HER OWN GRIEF AT THE DEATH OF MY BELOVED STEP-FATHER IN 2016 FROM A TYPE OF DEMENTIA THAT TOOK AWAY HIS ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE WITH US.


THIS PROJECT WAS COMPLETED IN RESPONSE TO MY FINAL MA BRIEF.
