Monster Munch & Running

Monster munch

Lately I’ve been focusing on making individual drawings from the photos sent to me by the participants – I’ve noticed the repeated contrast between the medical and non-medical. This picture ‘Monster munch & running’ has the personal magazines and snacks of patient Tom – but there are subtle markers that a fellow patient would recognise: the branded paper tea cups that get offered throughout the day, and the tiles that give away the fact that when the ward (in a building over a hundred years old) was split into single rooms, certain anomalies remained in the internal features.

It also struck me that a magazine about running was a sort of escapism. While patients are encouraged to use exercise equipment in their rooms, covering of physical distance is impossible while staying inside the room.
