Escherichia Coli

Having recently contracted a rare strain of e.coli through eating contaminated lettuce and being hospitalised for 14 days, my installation explores both the irony of my obsession with food and trying to eat healthy, while ending up becoming violently sick from it. Held in an isolation room for what felt like eternity, forced me to look at the experience in a lighthearted and positive manner, with nothing but crossword puzzles and my sketchbook to keep me sane. My work reflects this mindset through fun illustrations and the use of the colour green, which was very prominent during my experience.
