Reflections on and changes to project brief

The more I look at disability and the issues and discourse brought into focus by disabled artists themselves, the more the project is developing into a need to challenge stereotypes and present my subjects as people who are trying to lead normal existences despite their impairments, and despite societal barriers, rather than what I had first envisaged as a kind of collection of people who are achieving things beyond what the initial diagnosis had predicted for them. This may seem like a slight adjustment, but it is a huge political shift for me.

  1. Hi Carl,

    May I suggest you add a small section to this blog under Background or “about” where you just include a section of where you are, what you are doing and why. I can easily find your location!
