Aphantasic Artist – sculpture

Rachel Louise Clarke asked 2 weeks ago

I am a student at Cardiff Met, doing my MA in Fine Art, I have aphantasia and recently discovered dyslexia.My artistic practice is about reflecting my aphantasia through sculpture. I work in the dark initially, which reflects my inability to visualise. Creating work without vision removes an element of control and also removes design and intention. I feel this process calms my mind and helps with my creative expression.These issues are completely new to my tutors who have no experience of aphantasia. I have been in contact with Prof Adam Zeman at Univesity of Exeter both during my degree and now in my MA.I would be very interested in feedback from other artists in whatever field on this subject. I am very interested in collaboration.
