This project recorded a dark moment in my life when I wanted to save myself in a London garden. I liken myself to a garden wanderer to recreate this dialogue between the body and the landscape. In an English garden, the body wanders between the comforting landscape of the eye and the pleasure of wandering aimlessly.

This will have two parts, from the low point to the gradual rescue of itself.

The first part will be based on blackness, the feeling of wandering through my darkest moments

The second part is the gradual process of saving myself, with black and pink as the primary colour palette, a slow blooming of flowers.
