An autoethnografic approach to looking at interpretation and understanding of personal and artistic identity; by juxtaposing the vessel with the decorative and communicative abilities of Morse code and intentionally creating a point of friction where the questions  of identity and interpretation can take place. The thesis dicusses the background to the autoethnografic research which is rooted in the artists own questions regarding personal and artistic identity. By using the closed vessel as a vehicle to discuss certain issues raised during the research period, the discussion moves through the physical elements of the project towards the final discussion of the concepts behind the objects made. Additionally, the appendix reflects upon the objects in relation to the final exhibition.
