My mission is to make life stand still so that I can examine it,
try to understand it from a variety of different angles, touch it and taste it.
I want to create different circumstances in which I can be a watcher of life
and of human experience. I want to infiltrate settings, become part of the
everyday, participate enough to be overlooked, to take things slowly in.
For two years I have been helping people who are in the end stages of dementia.
I draw the images which haunt me, and I trap moths.
Images of people suffering are sensitive
And so I cannot show my drawings to you.
Instead I can tell a story of a moth which steals a baby girl
and carries her through the darkness
to another world.
This world is the inside of another person’s brain:
that of an old man in the end stages of dementia.
