 This artwork explores isolation, trauma and memory for my pain experience. The use of filing cabinet as an outer structure was informed by Gaston Bachelard's 'The Poetics of Space: The classic Look at How We Experience Intimate Places'. In it, he claims various architectural structures that deal with inside and outside such as wardrobes and cabinets are metaphors for the complex human psyche where our intimate ideas, memories, thoughts and feelings are stored and organised. He also states that drawers and shelves in a wardrobe and other purposeful furniture to contain and store objects are symbols for the organs of one’s psychological life.
