‘A Black Dog Came Calling’ is the culmination of an eight-year practice led PhD research programme into a visualisation of my experience of depression. This work can best be read as an allegorical 'journey', that combined with the text above and below the images takes the viewer through a first hand experience of depression, the images working as evocations (or maybe contemplations) of a particular emotional state, rather than specific locations, and are deliberately left open enough for the viewer to bring their own perceptions to the work depending on what experiences they carry.
