The involvement of human touch means the photographer moves from being passive to the image, to being an active participant in the photograph, contextualising lived experience into a medium usually limited only by its capacity to record a moment.

Artist Statement

The involvement of human touch means the photographer moves from being passive to the image, to being an active participant in the photograph, contextualising lived experience into a medium usually limited only by its capacity to record a moment. Questioning domesticity in the everyday and the repetition of regular tasks, her work examines the impact these processes have on the self during quarantine. Through the pages we delve into notion of the unknown through forty distinct experiments. The viewer is invited to share in internal conversations and thoughts, creating a conversation between the order and chaos that is being reflected upon. 

Fear merges written and photographic objects which offer a more personalised insight into the artists vision. She is selective in this process and is in control of what she reveals and what remains hidden to the viewer. Playing with revised definitions of the English language she is able to provide a sense of humour and honesty to a more nuanced lexicon.

Individual Contribution Award
"Since joining our course in the 2nd year, Pixie has gone above and beyond with her support towards other students, enthusiasm and commitment towards the subject. She is always there for everyone and has such a positive outlook on many situations. She is mature, loving and a friend to everyone in the department. She always contributes in discussions. Pixie is also mother to a young beautiful girl called Effy and she balances this with all the hard work she produces at University and at home with her family. I feel that Pixie should be recognised for her effort, commitment and positive attitude. Our course would definetely not be the same without her."
