Framing The World Through My Photographs
Epileptic – David B
I was directed to this Graphic novel by fellow classmate Rosa, I had never heard of this work before. The novel by David B explores his childhood and adolescence whilst his brother was developing serve epilepsy
Although not completely related to what I am doing for phonar, I found that relating back to Bleasdale and Huey who use the idea of collaboration and putting there work into a different medium in the way of collaboration with different artists. David B hasn’t collaborated with a different artist, however the use of the graphic novel allows a different type of audience relate to the condition and life around the suffers.
David B’s work is well informed has he has deals with the effect of epilepsy in his everyday life. David Campbells believes that a good body of work is one that understands its own narrative, which it is clear this work does.
I am not creating a graphic novel however I am trying to create a piece that will allow different audiences to experience aspects around dyslexia.
