THE SECRET LIFE OF AN EATING DISORDER, 2018

Continuing the theme of eating disorders, work is currently being created for an installation at the Knitting & Stitching Show. One of the main features of this artwork will be a one-twelfth scale dolls house in which the bedroom is furnished with a miniature version of a hospital bed, along with a tiny drip stand, weighing scales, stethoscope and blood pressure cuff. In a solo gallery, a life-size bedroom/hospital room will be created as a close replica of the miniature dolls house bedroom and will be furnished with a full-size hospital bed; actual medical equipment will be adapted by using textiles and hand stitch to create individual artworks. The dolls house will sit inside the installation as an indication of scale; inside the dolls house is a miniature house (1-48th scale), and within that is a really tiny house barely a millimetre high.
