Newcastle University MFA 2015 Summer Exhibition - Sofija Sutton

Sofija Sutton has created a large installation utilizing the room’s architecture to construct an oversized diagram linking multiple short stories. 

"Text, audio, space, and video unite through flash fiction to express various notions of ‘low mood’ and, in contrast, combatant methods. Ticks consuming bus passengers, dawn and dusk as lovers, a bear with a yellow tongue, a woman bleaching her hair, and other fantasies each use absurdities with the mundane as metaphors for mental health shortcomings. "

Sutton writes "I hope my work will compel the viewer to physically interact with the mind map, so that the story points may thread together a work that is both thought-provoking and entertaining."
