"Grasping At Straws" is the second image in, Appointment With My Therapist, a series of twelve “Découpage” exploring the unconscious. It contains a visual narrative from a fictional client’s point of view as they make their way to their first psychotherapy session at the therapist’s downtown office. As the client navigates the urban maize, the buildings, spaces, pulsing lights and people in movement morph into abstract mental constructs representing the client’s fears and paranoia. Each image is a “psychological puzzle” comprised of six photographs cut and codified according to shape, light and colour. The twelve images become the client’s “presentation issues” for each month of a year of therapy.
