(Re) finding and (re) situating.

 

Psychoanalysis and phenomenology focus on the body as it is experienced, whereas the inscriptive model is more concerned with the process by which the subject is marked , scarred, transformed and written upon or constructed by the various regimes of institutional and discursive powers.

Our bodies are storehouses of inscriptions and messages between our internal and external boundaries. Medical processes of removal and addition as well as cultural signs on the surface of body such as clothing, make up and living spaces all mark our bodies. These become like coded signs, often of a social nature.

How do these thought contribute to my practice? I have been incorporating geometric forms to curved aspects of the bodies internal organs. Attempting to analyse the bodies boundaries in terms of its boundaries and zones to show how each system is in a perpetual motion and interrelation with the other. Looking for signs, codes and synchronicity in the outside world with our internal states fascinates me.
