Inside the Bubble - the Fragmented Self

'Hannah O'Shea's remarkable video Inside The Bubble - The Fragmented Self focuses on the dilemma of trying to forge a bridge between the experience we might call art, and another commonly refered to as schizophrenic delusion.' Guy Brett 'Inside The Bubble embodies a powerful interaction between emotional content, structural form and aesthetic considerations, the resulting alchemy serving as a metaphor for deluded and paranoid states of mind - the deer performing the role of cypher for both human beings and themselves. The relationship between 'the observer' and 'the observed' is continuously dislocated, shifting the audience between the voyeuristic and the empathetic.' Hannah O'Shea
