Collecting identity investigates how single artworks can hold completely unpredictable and multiple meanings. Susan Ryman, for her PhD research in Natural History Illustration, has made original artworks using the traditional tools of the illustrator, reflecting on the immediate world in all of its contradictory forms. These memory triggers encourage viewers to reflect on their own experiences, memories and emotions in this unique approach to storytelling.
