A Bed above the Abyss: Amnesiac Notebook
Poem by Andrew Allport
This project of 10 -12 images was inspired by a poem selected by each student. The poetry was published by the New Issues Poetry and Prosed here on Western’s campus. This series makes a reference to Oliver Sacks article “The Abyss”, which is about Clive Wearing, a musician whom has one of the worst cases of amnesia ever recorded. Based on documentaries and articles, the photographs are an interpretation of what moments in his life are like.
