Swelling journeys through a pathological dissection of diseases, tumours and corporeal abnormalities mutating into autonomous entities, giving an abstract impression of the internal body. All the sourced imagery is hospital diagnostic imaging, leaving the viewer questioning - could it be my internal self portrait? The sound is a mixture of bodily noises, digitally effected and mixed into a rhythmic repetition of the breath and the heartbeat. After four minutes of this rhythmic mutation, it is hoped the viewer is left a little on the 'giddy' side.
