Through this work I have explored cellular connectedness. I hold the belief that we are all somehow connected. Genetic research has been carried out into addiction and it is now known that drug addiction (heroin, cocaine, alcohol and nicotine etc) is a highly heritable disorder with about 50% of the risk of drug addiction being genetic.
I have created three works based on cells. Each ‘cell’ is unique, which is due to the process by which they are made. They are also made up differing colours but the outside remains the same plain white plaster. As humans we are capable of looking ‘normal’ on the outside but this belies what is actually going on inside.
I see the series working well within your theme of Addiction. Often, when we look at Addiction we look at the social and bodily effects it has and we forget the chemistry that is taking place within our bodies. My work looks at the very beginning of what makes us and how, through external stressors such as drugs and alcohol, changes can come about.
