Definiton: A state of mind that is discussed as if it were a place; “he lived in the ivory tower of speculation”; “they viewed universities as ivory towers”
Ivory Towers is a project that focuses on self reflection and my own interpretations of different states of mind. The series explores feelings such as being ‘out of place’, ‘despair’ or ‘serenity’.
As this is a series centred on my own projection of different feelings and how I visually perceive them I use self-portraiture to express the differing states of mind whilst retaining a connection between them all – that they belong to the one person. I utilise different places and objects that are in keeping with the state of mind I am conveying.
