Who changes the story?

Devika , 21

Scotland for me was a major change in the way my story is being written. I am also a literature student thus Jeanette Winterson’s quote: “I can change the story. I am the story” was extremely impactful especially in terms of postmodernism as a movement.
Thus, when I decided to paint one of these closes in Edinburgh City Centre, I got angry at how inaccurate it looked and tore it off my notebook – it looked so much better after the tearing and reminded me about how art post 60s was a lot about accepting your mistakes in your story.
