Scenes from a Brain

Sound by Justin Cavenagh
Pictures by Jason Poley

A very personal, personal project. An attempt to visualise some of the raw emotions experienced during depressed periods. Started during a bad time, and completed later. Meant going back to examine and re-experience feelings. Talking openly about feelings is hard. Making pictures has always come more naturally, looking back has been a constant coping mechanism. Along with some less healthy ones.

Justin came in towards the end of the process, re-scoring something so personal isn’t an easy task. He exceeded expectations, somehow creating a track that Jason felt like he’d know for decades.

If your struggling with your brain, please contact your GP and get a mental health plan. (In Australia at least, international friends look to your healthcare systems.)
