Self Directed Project: Inside a surgeon's mind

I decided to choose the 'Self Directed' project as I am really keen to pursue the 'Moral Consequences' brief further as I feel it's a natural progression and also I felt as though I had only touched on the subject matter and I want to delve further.  Whilst making the surgeon character and scenery previously I started to really think about what his private life, interests, obsessions looked like, what was he fascinated with?, did he live two lives? was he real? - With all these things whirling around in my mind I just couldn't resist exploring this further.

I am at initial stages of research, and want to look at a few things/keywords, such as;

  • Personalities/traits of a surgeon
  • Psychoanalysis
  • Absurdity/Extreme
  • Obsessional behaviour
  • Blurred reality
  • Persona's/hidden secrets in human behaviours
  • Biology/Skeletal diagrams
  • Connection of objects/History
I always like to start a project this way and I hope to gather as much research to start thinking how I will approach this project.  So far I am drawn to the idea of a persona based project that connects to objects and belongings.  As I am currently writing my journal for my final year I feel the themes/connections in this projects are things I am really concerned with in my own work and practise and feel they will enrich my writing.
