NAOMI JANSEN IS A VISUAL ARTIST BASED IN THE NETHERLANDS
As a visual artist I transform rather negative associations of illnesses into easy to understand visual representations. I intuitively visualize the inner state of common and uncommon illnesses, by doing so I give insight in complex topics for a broader audience to understand the effect an illness can have. As a visual artist I work with photography and installations unraveling themes such as Skin cancer, Migraine, Tinnitus and Rhinitis. These works are created in collaboration with individuals dealing with health issues. By working together with professionals from the medical and scientific field, I attempt to unite two worlds. My strength lies in translating big health issues with minimal and practical elements to a compelling story, always seeking to create a perfect balance between the narrative and the aesthetics.
