Moving on Project (2010)

The ‘Moving on’ project was part of the final year of a two year residency based at Ysbyty Gwynedd, North Wales.  Whilst working on the photography workshops at the Hergest Unit during the first year of the residency, Brett noticed how quickly the group would change from week to week as in-patients left acute care and returned home, returning to their community.  Brett would often wonder how each patient managed with life after hospital care, how they felt about dealing with their illness within their own environment, their daily personal goals, and exploring the places where they would feel most comfortable and at ease with themselves.

Brett worked closely with two outpatients in their community to create two pieces of work that deals with life in a ‘bi-polar world’.  The following two films take the viewer on a journey through very personal and engaging internal and external landscapes, combining dialogue with imagery that allow the words space for contemplation.
