Photographer and Visual Fine Artist, Yas Crawford describes her musings behind a new series ‘Cellular Flow_ I’ve been thinking’. The images describe an unsettling journey of chronic illness, its complexity, beauty and uncontrollable flow are delicately combined in an otherworldly biological space. Crawford introduces the series describing her thoughts on flow “I’ve been thinking. Well, it seems I’ve always been thinking mainly about flow: flow of life, flow of cells, flow of energy, flow of time since I became ill, since others became ill. A long time ago. Maybe I’m just a thinker. Seems silly but isn’t flow what we need for continuity? After all some people’s flow is cut short, distorted, broken, redirected, or just interrupted”
“How does anyone adjust to this type of change?” she states. Crawford let’s these musings seep into her images in the hope it resonates with others explaining “Abstraction provides a safe place for the audience to view the art. Read into it what they want or not! The images ambiguity foreshadows the future, complex but owning a place amongst the fluid and liquid environment”.

"Through an exploration of perspective, complexity and scientific investigation I create imagery that reveals, explains and connects us consciously to the ambiguous and unknown".
