Abstract

In this thesis, I explore different ways art can be used as a form of expression and the ways in which personal experiences and general views can contribute to this and also what it means to use art as part of a healing process. I discuss the artwork I made for my exhibition where I used different media such as text, symbols, projection and sound to create an installation which suggests, amongst other things, a child’s eye view of my experience of foster care in the UK. I discuss artists, ideas and exhibitions which influenced my work. Finally I consider responses and reactions to my work and draw some conclusions about how effectively I carried out the objectives I set myself and how this sets the scene for future work.
