Guernsey Underground Military Hospital


Heavy air hangs in the Damp Underground Hosipital in Guernsey. Dug out by hundred of Allied Slaves. A space where people died to provide a facility so others had a chance to live. Now the buried walls are an echo of its past untouched and no longer inhabited by humans. The leaking water and dim glowing lights are the only representation of life.

The atmosphere contained in the labyrinth of corridors is a fascinating and challenging.

Reflections of Alice

(, )

There are parallels between this self portrait and the beginning of Alice’s in Wonderland. Alice has finished her descent down the rabbit hole and finds herself upon the floor. The self portrait was based upon an accident Emily had when  she was seven years old and is a reflection on how having concussion caused her to enter her own Wonderland.  Falling off a rope swing and hit her head on the brick floor below. Whilst falling the appearance of time changed and slowed her world, distorting it into green and red strands of colourful nonsense.
