Domestic Disorder considers the chaos and congestion of clutter within the domestic setting. This is a personal journey, questioning my relationship with possessions, through a process of personal interaction and analysis of accompanying feelings and emotions. In effect, my photographic practice becomes personal therapy. It documents my ongoing journey from a place of disorder, where clutter and possessions overwhelm me. Resolving past issues and improving my relationship with personal possessions, I strive to achieve a more streamlined life, reducing stress.
Kathryn is a photographer/visual artist from Plymouth, UK. Since rediscovering photography during a period of ill health it became her passion and therapy. Photography, now transformative, led her on a journey of self-discovery achieving BA Honours and Master’s degrees in the subject. Kathryn’s masters study provided opportunities to push the boundaries of her practice taking her work in new and exciting directions. Now autoethnographic and cathartic, her work combines personal performance with humour to explore personal history, female identity through domestic experience.
