Project statement


The images of Psychogenesis are derived from an archive of several thousand images I made between 2020 and 2022. Having bipolar disorder, I go through phases of manically producing work and opposite phases of deep introspection. It is in the creative phase that I make all my images, and in the introspective phase that I piece them all together. Psychogenesis is an investigation into my mind and my personal realities, which are both intrinsically entangled with my memory.


"the psychological cause to which a mental illness or behavioral disturbance may be attributed (as distinct from a physical cause)" (Oxford Dictionary)
