Framing The World Through My Photographs

fmp – proposal update

One in ten people in the uk suffer from dyslexia, I am one of them. One in 4 people in the UK suffer from severe dyslexia.

Dyslexia is a spectrum disorder with symptoms ranging from mild to severe. Dyslexics suffer particular difficulties with:

  • Phonological awareness
  • Rapid serial naming
  • Verbal Memory
  • Verbal processing speed

Dyslexia is an invisible disability, where something in the brain did not develop how it should have done. Although dyslexia is becoming more widely known and picked up on, I still feel that it is not understood by people with out dyslexia, But how could it be?

Dyslexia doesn’t present itself in the same way in each person with it. People with it see and process things differently. I have often heard the phrase “ I’m having a dyslexic day”, as an ‘excuse’ when they get something wrong, but have no true understanding of what it actually feels like to be dyslexic. I hope to have learnt more about dyslexia through this project.

 

Whilst undertaking this project I have been wanting to create a piece of work that will help the view start to understand aspects of dyslexia, however I had been finding it difficult to create a visual response for this, where as in a previous module Phonar I worked with sound to create a piece that did just that, however I am wanting to create a visual piece for my final project. My ideas have shifted more towards my emotional responses when I am undertaking different tasks which I feel are effected by my dyslexia.
