My practice-based PhD research involves creating object illustrations to critically engage an audience on the topic of women’s body image. It is an iterative practice that begins by making autoethnographic object illustrations, meaning I use my personal experience as a way to critique culture and further research. These object illustrations go on to help develop a way of working with groups of people who identify as women on the topic of body image.
Autoethnography is a method used within the social sciences that aims to engage audiences on a subject, usually through creative writing, and often with a social justice intention. It has given me a broader cultural and cross-disciplinary understanding of my experience. My position within the research is visible, yet this particular viewpoint will be a limitation. I cannot speak for everybody.
