A curated digital “Outsider Art” project based on over 4000 self-portraits, exploring the experience of surviving childhood sexual abuse and its consequences.

Echo lives in the Central Western Region of NSW and uses the tools of digital art making to assess and address his experiences of childhood sexual abuse and the subsequent 30 years of living with CPTSD (Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

As part of a 7 year self-healing undertaking he calls “The Project”, Echo has used the “selfie” as a platform to explore memory and the emotional and psychological consequences of his experience of abuse, from early childhood to the current day.

He has also begun, in the second stage of TRAumaART, a two year collaboration with mentor, Laszlo Szabo, to use objects – sculpture, objects and memorabilia and with support and mentoring from Social Ventures Media is curating the collected work into a large scale exhibition for touring from early 2017.
