The Topic of Cancer



Cancer lends itself to military metaphor, both in its nature (Battle, Attack, Territory) and in its treatment (Search and Destroy).

The crab portrays the illness as an internal, and infernal, chaotic transgression. It becomes a celestial abomination, spiralling through nature, devoid of conscience.

The vibrant colours reflect my own hallucinatory experiences during treatment and the firework-like motion charts the poisonous cycle of the chemotherapy as it simultaneously destroys and heals.
