I will make works of art in response to the experience of diabetes. The artwork will include drawn and object stop motion animations, drawings, cartoons, sculptures, and organised drawing performances that will construct a narrative about living with diabetes today. Soundscapes responding to the visual artwork will be produced and integrated into the finished work. You can read more about the intended outcome here.
