The internal landscape is a heavily explored space after a lifelong history of mental illness. Through a staged setting this landscape is recreated to convey the all-encompassing effects of crippling anxiety I experience. By the coating of rooms in a dizzying pattern, I represent a visual and mental hijacking. The pattern in the image originates from a recreation of a mental image repeatedly on loop during an anxious attack caused by mental illness triggers, such as storms. The image July 29th is of a severe storm that caused flooding and gale force winds on the streets of a coastal New Jersey town. While the image Alarm System is a response to anxiety the two images in conjunction with one another place the literal and the imagined side-by-side to show the complicated dichotomy of the internal and external experience.
