Beauty is cruel //// Diploma project
In my project I was thinking about a specific ambivalence: the fact that an image can reflect one thing but hide another aspect of the topic. I started to think about using and exploiting the paradox deadly sicknesses have. This year, I worked at the Molecular Cell Biology department in LUMC (Leiden Medical Center) to do research and create my own images. My project is about the cancer process. The central question guiding this research was: What is beautiful about -in this case- cancer? What can beauty mean in the context of grave sickness.
