The subject of Helen Chadwick's work is herself. The book forms a cumulative, evolving portrait of a British artist through a diversity of media, including sculpture, the photocopier, light projections, computer and the microscope. In 1987 she was shortlisted for the Turner Prize.;Beginning with a series of photo-sculptures, she depicts her growth from the incubator to adulthood. In an enterprise called "Of Mutability", she has suspended her own image in a sea of organic form and decay.
