Eczema (dermatitis) is often characterised by redness, swelling, itchiness, rash and blisters. Caused by allergens, genetic and environmental factors it can be easily triggered by stress and emotional instability. Diagnosed with the condition in an early childhood it has been an everyday obstacle for me ever since. I have been angry with my skin and my body for letting me down so many times I've decided to use it as a topic for my project and finally turn something disgusting into something beautiful. I've been concentrating on the emotions that stand behind my past major eczema outbreaks and tracked the events that had caused them.
