Out of the Box

2 December to 2nd January 2020

Each of us writes a life script for ourselves in early infancy as we work out the best way to survive in the world we live in. The main plot is laid down before we have the language to put this into words. Detail is added during childhood with most of it written by the time we are seven, before we have the ability for logical reasoning. The script is further refined during adolescence. By adulthood we are no longer aware of our script although we unconsciously navigate our lives to fit in with the boxes we have created for ourselves. These boxes are constructed by the thoughts and beliefs, feelings and actions imposed on us by others, together we are our construction of our life story. The boxes limit our view about our dreams and aspirations, It governs how we react to difficult things we encounter. Those around know what to expect and we fit in with their self fulfilling script.
This exhibition explores examines the journey of what happens when people change their script.
