28/4/12 Melbourne University – Bookstore
On the way to my Film Theory class, I walked past the bookstore for Medical Science / Anatomy, which also featured a full length skeleton in the front window. The store also featured various reproductions of different skulls in a range of different colours that were for sale. I decided to collect a catalogue at the front of the store and I recognised an image of a skull or skeleton on every page.
I decided to create a collage from these images and the constant repetition of the human skull did become quite overwhelming. I started to feel disoriented and it was hard to actually look at one particular image for a long period of time without looking at the overall collage. The objective of this particular process was to identify my own emotions or responses in relation the skull.
