Autobiology responds to cultural paradigms surrounding illness and identity from the vantage point of someone with a chronic immune disorder. Ross-Millard performs the alphabet in motion, using the by-product as a customised font with which to write an auto-theoretical essay on her experience with medical diagnosis. This piece considers the entanglement of therapeutic applications of language and illness as metaphor. She engages in a kind of self-diagnosis, testing the ways in which language mediates and medicates her experience of illness. Autobiology is the central component of an installation featuring an audio installation, graphic fabric banners and print work.
