Conversations with Myself (2008)

 

‘Conversations with Myself’ revolves around the psychological tension that someone with obsessive compulsive (OCD) creates in and around the physical space around them. At first glance, it seems like a ‘fly on the wall’ documentary, it is very telling in the way the piece unfolds.  However, the voice-over disrupts the realism of the work and pushes it into a more profound area of representation by portraying the subject in a more conscious and intriguing way.  The poignancy of the work is the fusion between the tension of the inner voice and the rhythm of the physical movements of the subject whilst moving around within their ‘own’ reality. A reality that does not exist for the majority of those outside it, looking in.
