The person recognisable as me

Sublimation print on velvet, text

2021

The person recognisable as me is a digital reconstruction of a visual memory, using only images found via google searches. The image depicts a scene witnessed through a psychoanalyst’s window during a conversation in which, overly conscious of therapy cliches, the protagonist's attempts at authentic self-expression feel instead like a disingenuous performance.

The title is taken from a short story by Clare Sestanovich called 'Old Hope'
