This body of work aims to explore the experience of those who have moved to the United Kingdom and the feelings of what it is like to be in a new and unfamiliar place. I intend to subvert expectations by turning familiar places in the United Kingdom into alien environments. Which has been done through the use of text and colour. By collecting stories from those who have moved to the United Kingdom I have considered how I could portray them in a way that adequately communicates the experiences they had moving to the United Kingdom. I hope that with the work that I have created, those who view it will be able to find comfort in knowing that they can see their own experiences in the work that I have created. Furthermore, I hoped that those who were raised in the United Kingdom are more emphatic to those who have moved to the United Kingdom.
