Brief: Communicate the story of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, by Oliver Sacks, visually through a series of images. Identify themes and symbols, highlight metaphors.
— In this work I have tried to capture what it may be like to see through the eyes of the patient in this story. His pathology is complicated, for example, when asked to describe a glove he recognises it as a container but is unable to realise its relationship to a hand.
These three images depict key moments from the story that enable a reader to appreciate the world this patient may live in, one that is hard to otherwise imagine.
