I wanted to study and explore the emotional and physical response that comes from a person when you change the environment that they are used to. I contacted my friend who had an unhealthy obsession with cars. I wanted to make him feel uncomfortable in a place he would often find comforting. We decided to turn my car into a studio, I had a series of requests in order to cause discomfort. I asked that he took off his top and after experimenting with the imagery for a while I decided to pour some water over him. He was quite frustrated by this point as we had been experimenting like this for several weeks. I have chosen this image as it is the final response to this idea.
