Remorseless Sweet Artist Book

This set of cliché verre is my first endeavour into making art about self-erasure coming from the perspective of my own experience with an eating disorder. The imagery on the negatives is that of the long term consequences of eating disorders which include conditions such as deterioration of heart muscle, liver autophagy, osterporosis, and brittle hair. Utilizing the fact that cliché verre negatives are hand drawn, I wanted the the act of drawing and creating the negatives to reflect on the process of self-erasure as I created the imagery that would block the chemically treated paper form exposure. Also the process reflects that of architectural blueprints, and conversely blueprints of a degrading corporeal architecture.
