Confined Strain is an exploration of the way I move my body when I am in pain. I contort, straining against the tension in my limbs, writhing in an attempt to stretch at every fibre in my body. As the series of movements progress I become fatigued, my skin burnt by the surface I am moving on, yet I continue, pushing at the boundary of my endurance. In each push, stretch, or tense there is a release of pain, with the promise of more to come.
