in the shadow of cancer

A personal project about my emotions and turmoil through my mother living with cancer. My focus was on the frustrations and conflicting emotions that are often overlooked that relatives of the cancer victim experience. The confusing battle of being strong for your parent but also wanting to express other emotions, as well as the role reversal of cancer now being the head of the house. I created several sculptures which I then destroyed to symbolise my anger and confusion and ways in which cancer is not always shown in mainstream media. Below is shown CANCER/CONCRETE, The Tumor, Pill Games and a collection of photography from my mothers treatment.
