QUOLAB + SAVANNAH COMRADES
I am an artist and I am bipolar. I am interested in exploring and conveying the sensations of the altered mind to people who either have shared my experience or who are open to understanding or feeling experiences they have not had. I think the mind is a fascinating tangle of emotional states, chemical surges and balancing acts, and I am interested in navigating that landscape, via personal autobiography and poetic visual interpretations. www.cargocollective.com/rosiepink
