Rachel is continually overwhelmed; by relationships, promises, family, her past, adult responsibilities, future survival, mental health, decision making, emotions, timekeeping and everything in between. She has been writing everything down on small scrolls, popping them in bottles and encasing them in glitter.
Each bottle is an original and a piece of Rachel.
Rachel choose to look up one day last May in Cardiff. This is what she saw.
By Way Of Introduction – Live interactive exchange for one.
Duration apx 10 minutes.
Sat 11am-12.30pm & 1-2pm
