Second Opinion

'Second Opinion' suspends 512 broken pieces of mirror in mid air. Written on the mirror is an exact copy of a woman’s medical notes that detail a woman accepting a clinical misdiagnosis of a condition rather than having to relive a traumatic incident until she was believed. Light shines on the piece, meaning the words are reflected on to walls as ghost words, never to be put back in the same order again.

 

The piece is based both on clinical data and collected testimonials of women that detail women’s voices and bodies being ignored and misdiagnosed by the medical profession in the UK.
