Title : Parasites of the Mind

Category : Autism

RK: “The main concept of this piece is the negative idea of a mental illness. This is that there is, simply, something in a person's mind that makes them act differently; I have taken that 'something' and given in physical form in the form of parasitic worms.”

Judges comments: “Using worms provides a wonderful double metaphor of the wiring linking different brain areas and the negative perceptions of autism.
An enticing and intriguing piece of work, however, mental illness was not the topic.”
