“Happy to provide you with feedback and interactions people had with your work.
A few key things stood out when we did the screening of the work in the lecture theatre on opening night. I had a few people come up to me who spoke about how brave it was that you shared this project and process of recovery from self harm. A lot of people were interested in the Kombucha skin samples we had displayed, and about the process of making them. A few people found the video very difficult to watch because of the nature of the content, and that it is a very personal work. Many people over all who did experience the video talked to me about how it was a very important to show this kind of work, that although it was challenging, they felt like it was a necessary thing to show in an exhibition that talks about mental health.”
