Last week the results were revealed by the ISTD of which I was awarded membership into the prestigious society. My work focused on presenting traditional literature in a contemporary manner that could engage the 21st century reader.

Metamorphosisolation is a photographic/graphic response to the short story Metamorphosis. The short story by Franz Kafka entitled ‘Metamorphosis’ has been represented in a number of ways with people extracting metaphors, abstract meanings and visual representations. ‘Metamorphosisolation’ focuses on the underlining element of isolation felt by the key protagonist Gregor. The story follows the obscure young man who, transformed overnight into a giant beetle like insect, becomes an object of disgrace to his family, an outsider in his own home,
a quintessentially alienated man. Not the normal life of a travelling salesman.

So its been awhile since I have posted an update on my current projects so thought I would finally post one about what I’m working on.
I’m currently working on a university project which is based upon the short story by Franz Kafka entitled ‘Metamorphosis’. I’m focusing on the underlining subject of isolation and am exhibiting a series of projections that present the feeling of loneliness. The projects aim to depict the protagonists feeling through the story.
Here are a couple of images taken from my first exhibit at Thomas Parker House in Lincoln.
I will post another update about the project once it has developed further and I have exhibited a few more projections.
