Prince‘s Drop

Named after the scientific phenomenon regarding an object that is impossibly strong from most perspectives but fragile when targeted, this project is an exploration of the male psyche and how melancholia is being increasingly conveyed in more nuanced methods. The masculine experience, in particular, plays a fundamental role in navigating this, with the project beginning with me examining my own experience with the simultaneous delicacy and fortitude that possessing mental disorders involves. This has involved experimentation with a variety of image-making methods and an approach to the depiction of male mental health that emphasises a function on form and the empowerment of the mundane to convey complex topics such as moral crises, anxious compulsions and mania.
