Are You Normal for Your Age? Degree Show Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design. June 2002

‘Are You Normal for Your Age?’ is an installation piece comprising 8 wooden figures mounted on the wall and sound. It refers it the clinical gaze and particularly to the developmental assessment of children and the expectation that they fall within a normal range.

The piece is based on an inset puzzle used to assess children’s language development in paediatric clinics, the standardised questions have been subverted and become ambiguous and sinister. The viewer is placed in the position of the child with language problems being asked to answer incomprehensible questions.
