Eye level is different for everyone so perspectives aren’t ever the same. As a new wheelchair user my eye level has literally given me new horizons. Sometimes this is good, I’m not going to fall over so I look up more at the sky and trees. Sometimes, less desirable, in a crowded room or street I am often at groin or buttock level.
These collages are compiled from manipulated photographs I have taken with my phone and show the things I can’t easily access and have to be fought for through layers of need and new priority. They preference spines, legs and medication symbolised by toadstools and yew trees also representing mortality. All veiling and constraining, with a degree of humour, the nature I am desperate to connect with.
