From the artist:
This video and painting go together. This was filmed when I was rendered non verbal due to severe fatigue after sensory overwhelm. Though I could hardly function, during moments of severe fatigue and burnout, to gain the strength to talk, I began to self record streams of consciousness poetry pouring out of me. Later, I began to paint, and began to make a world using mixed media. I realised the only vessel that got me out of the abyss of fatigue was art-making because when I’m combining media, it gives me the confidence to exist in society and this world. I spend so much time in distress, anxious or excluded because I don’t make sense when communicating or interacting with people and I noticed that when I’m re served ‘incapable’ to the eyes of others, my psyche is open, it flows, my bed becomes an environment where I matter and my art is evidence of the value of its environment- an environment from which I thrive.
