I helped out with some research at Liverpool John Moores University and the Alef Trust. A post Grad student was doing research into different states of consciousness in relation to artists.
We had conversations about my history, how I journey through life and my creative processes etc. She did a great job of sensitively documenting these things.
I don't know if you've ever read back a history of yourself and your today? It really is an odd experience; the reality in front of you on a page, yep another type of mirroring.
