This thesis paper is a version of how I perceive, in retrospect, the process in which I engaged in both making and curating the artwork included in my thesis exhibition. Within it, I examine on a personal level, the how's and why's of making visual art. I also provide a framework for viewing my artwork by revealing my sources and influences. In Editing and Finishing, I address one of the most overlooked and yet important aspects of putting together an exhibition. Finally, in Processing, I focus on the production of each individual artwork in an attempt to provide a better understanding of how each image or sculpture came into being. In this section, I also situate the artworks, within a larger discourse, by introducing some of the questions, issues and concepts I have chosen to grapple with in the process of making visual work.
