Externalising M.E.


Externalising ME explores the hidden illness of M.E. (myalgic encephalomyalgia).  This work demonstrates how M.E. affects the body, the ever changing symptoms and the personification of the disease.  Using dried pigs intestine to mimic skin and contrasting it with reflective, fragile glass has created a unique juxtaposition between engaging with this concept and maintaining a highly intricate visual fragility.
