  • Documents well a real, unglamorised version of what its really like to have anorexia
  • The person is alway alone in the photography relates to the story where the character is alone in the mountains. 
  • Body checking as an accurate representation of the fear off changing appearance portrays my fear off having to go through body "changes" "growing up to adult hood appearence artificially" 
  • As superficial as it seems it is deeply emotional and anxiety provocking Its a fear of the world and having to interact with it.

 

Analysis :

  • Hollydays when i was at my worst I felt extremely alone and suspended from reality

  • Relates to how mental illnesses creep on to you and change your original state immensely from the inside (change the nature of your personality) but are not that visible on the outside.

Analysis :

  • Picture of hope the sheep is reunited to "social interaction" he is not alone 
  • there is no snow
  • Could interrogate the opposing vision of winter and flowers to represent spring and rebirth but although its interesting cause it would allow the use of catleya from the novel it might be not that original ?

  • Its like the mountains and ocean are more important in the story than the actors
  • music emphasize  the atmosphere 
  • the ocean is either calm are in rage showing with the scenery a prefiguration of the story It would be intersting to build up my scenery to prefigurate the story ?

  • Interesting idea introduces the idea of the little sheep being torned between an affective dependency to something he lost Safety and the need to move on.
  • The figures pupets are feeling very vulnerable suspended ungrounded and alone.

  • Anatomy of the women breast is here shown in a poetic tender illustrative style however it is paradoxal because the drawings were realised using the breasts of dead women and injected them with mercury.
  • Expresses the constant contradiction regarding growing up as a ultimate positive event that needs to happen but still seeing it as violent brutal and terrifying
  • chemicals in breast represents the feeling i had being advised to take those medicines at the gynecologist.
  • Introduces colours of the chemicals as "webs" around the breast could be interesting to represent change in my story 
  • possible colour scheme for knitting the character transforming ?
