DescriptionMeds – In the first series of an ongoing relationship with the ordinary and everyday objects in our shared or isolated lives, I’m encouraging interaction with some of the objects that define me as an individual. These are the things that I might reach for in different times of my day yet do so automatically, without much thought. For example, ‘Maldon Sea Salt’ goes on pretty much everything I eat which, when given further analysis, acts in some way as my maintained and physical connection to Europe – the salt from the sea is an essential part of my physicality.
‘Meds’ is another that I need every. Single. Day. An operation just under two years ago coupled with a late diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes has left my body with multiple points of neuropathic pain. I’ve lived my entire life without the need for health care aside from an appendectomy 25 years ago. I now cannot survive without six forms of pain medication.
