A 4 minute exploration into the power of surreal symbolic forms based on the body and issues of identity. Process of Becoming focuses on a raw primal sensibility as it seeks to inquire into the energy created through the juxtapositions of potent, visually loaded symbols - mixing hospital diagnostic documentation, with digital generated iconic forms, video grabs and drawings. The narrative is loosely based on the theme of death and rebirth and the organic cycle of regeneration.
