The work deals with the idea of identity and belonging. From being fostered at the age of three, Patrick was constantly aware of his surroundings and the need to fit in growing up. Looking back, he recognises those feelings as universal and the work looks to explore the ‘human condition’, specifically what makes people do what they do to have a sense of belonging – from the everyday to the extreme
