Ruth Garner


My work stems from research led documentary and portraiture projects. My final year series is called Distant Comfort. I have been looking at the ways that students express themselves through the objects and arrangements of their bedrooms; this is a place that is open to experimentation and freedom and everything is a form of self expression. The series has a focus on females because women have more of a desire to create a comfortable and protected environment by decorating and organising the objects in their bedrooms in particular ways. I have been examining the relationships that people have with objects and the ways that students find comfort in the things that they surround themselves with.
