Gayle and Sarah - reflections
Gayle and Sarah, two participants from the 2012 mosaic and clay projects, reflect on their contributions to the publication "Perspectives in Coping and Resilience". Gayle shared her beautiful artwork for the cover and Sarah allowed some of her correspondence and interviews with artist Anne Riggs to be included in the chapter "Out of the Shadows, Into the Light".
The use of video filters
Amongst the most common responses victims have to their past are
feelings of shame and guilt.For a variety of reasons many are not
comfortable being filmed and identified.One way around this discomfort
was to film through a filter which enables women’s expressions and body
language to be experienced by the viewer but without the participant
feeling overly exposed.
