  • Artist: Suki Chan

Fog in My Head contrasts real-world imagery with abstract scientific material. The artist takes the viewer on a sumptuous visual and aural journey: from the centre of a natural beehive, a developing brain, a home, an office and a forest. Connecting these distinct spaces is fog. The title refers to the quote “fog descending on the brain”, Wendy Mitchell’s metaphor for how dementia makes her feel. Fog is an analogy for the confusion, disorientation, isolation as well as the strange comfort that dementia brings.

Following Memory (2019), and Hallucinations (2020), Fog in My Head is the third film in Chan's CONSCIOUS trilogy, a study of consciousness and perception that brought together different perspectives from scientists and ordinary people to shake up our preconceptions about individual and collective consciousness.
