'Story Doctor':

Documentary & Mixed Media

Story Doctor: Master of Fine Arts Research 2007 - 2011
Elements: book cover design, video and installation, website and paintings
Exhibition 2011: COFA Space, Sydney   
This project had its genesis in 2007 following a fortuitous meeting on a flight where Julie met Dr Brian Broom, a NZ immunologist and psychotherapist. 
Dr Broom's work revealed how our bodyminds can respond to stories we carry at a level that's beyond our conscious awareness and how talking therapy can impact a person's physiology.
What followed was an exploration titled "Story Doctor", the basis of Julie's Fine Arts Masters research resulting in two short films and a suite of paintings.  

Christina's Story below, is one augmented story within Julie's extended video exploration documenting Dr Broom's patients.  Following 20 years of medical intervention for a persistent condition, Christina met with Dr Broom. The results were remarkable!
