In Bubble I spend a night in the sterile environment of a luxury hotel. The interior is glossy, neutral colours, tasteful décor, an expensive non-place designed for a pleasant experience. The work questions who has a right to leisure. It questions how this body exists in such a space, and how in this space it exists differently to other or othered bodies, such as how I may have been perceived before I embarked on my physically transformative project, it could be viewed as an explicit method for survival, also.
