The development of my style and concept for this project came from my interest in the role of the photographer after a moment is captured in an image. By using physical manipulation, and with inspiration from mixed media approaches, I explored how the meaning of an image can be distorted by the artistic input of the photographer within the reproductive process. The theme of the Sleepless Mind developed from the idea that although our eyes are shut and we appear still and peaceful as we sleep, our mind is always active.

My personal technique of photo-montage and re-photographing allowed me to explore using imperfections, manipulation and physical layering to create surreal imagery that brings together the idea of multiple viewpoints with a sense of movement and a combination of captured moments within each image. The series plays on the state of mind that we forget, the movement that we do not feel, yet it occurs every day.
