Jodie Taylor

Jodie Taylor’s “Memories of Childhood” project attracts me the same way as Gawain Barnard’s “Boredom To Burn” project. Both explore the destructive nature of boredom experienced by the young. Outlets of frustration and anger at changes they experience both physically, mentally and socially. Drives to understand and explore the limits of the boundary’s laid down by school, parents and society in general. Pushing and experiencing the melancholy of resistance and learning to accept or rebel.

(Jodie Taylor, 2013)

The need to imprint or make ones mark on you surroundings has been something that has happened since man lived in caves. Who is Mad Mikey? Did he write this or was it someone else making a statement?
