Space within a body (2018). 
Photograph by Aboozar Beheshti.

Jael-Anik is inspired by the body’s available efficiency, how it occupies and alters space and ways in which their shapes may align or collide. With this in mind, she considers the roles and responsibilities of individuals in the contemporary world.
