In Kate Murphy's self-portrait, Dear Kate....a probable portrait, we see the artist performing a series of handstands symbolising the ubiquitous figure used when presenting statistical information. Murphy has responded to the most common fears that society has on health, career, relationships and death including dying alone. Relating these to her own personal fears, Murphy invited a statistician to analyse the probability of these events occurring in her life.
