Brief Description: The Glass Ball is a narrative complemented by abstract and highly symbolic images. Within a Jungian framework, we discover the story of a lonely child who, having discovered a magic clearing in the woods, embarks upon a journey of awakening and self awareness. This is the beginning of work based around the concept of ‘self’ and ‘individuation’.
