In the shadows of the institution

Towards the end of 2021 I was approached by Dr. Lucy Series from Cardiff University to provide illustrations for a promotional video supporting her book on the marginalisation of differently abled people through the ages. The project really struck a chord and launched a whole raft of experimental work representing my feelings about the way I have been interacting with institutions and the 21st Century reality that restriction of freedom is still going on. It may not take the form of straight jackets and asylums, but may be imposed more subtly by committee and care.
