Coursework project 2 Sophie Karin Clark
Francesca Woodman Woodman uses idea that can link to a variety of diﬀerent meanings, the certain objects that symbolize or suggest something more sinister. Woodman acts like a wraith within her work, she doesn’t appear in much of her work visually but spiritually is. The crooked angles that she presents preserve a moment of rush and panic. The lily represents what lays around the corner and symbolises death. Francesca Woodman’s frame of mind shows within her work, in later dates she commiEed suicide at a young age. Mental illness creates a whole inter world inside your own mind, seeing ﬁgures that don’t exist or hearing voices that are only echo's of your mind. The blurred movement shown in a lot of her work portray how her mind scaEered from one place to the next.

Lauren E SimoneJ suﬀered from a mental illness and isolated herself away from the world, she locked herself inside her small home where she produced her photographs. In these photographs the distress that is being maximized by the isolaNon is shown within her work. The dull colours show the lack of light she let in from the windows, creaNng her own safe place away from the public.

Lisa Elmaleh Lisa Elmaleh portrays how the darkening shadows are slowing lurking towards the tranquil photographs. The contrast of the dark and sinister and the pure whites add a sense of the unknown danger. The damage to the photos suggest distress towards a certain locaNon.
The Kelvedon secret nuclear bunker was built in case of a nuclear explosion, and intended for the aQermath. The hatch was built in 1952 and made to ﬁt up to 600 personnel's. The bunkers even to today is kept at a low key from the public, these quality of the photo portrays this, the blurry edge added by the lack of light in the bunker. The disguise that ﬁlls the bunker has a sinister feel.
