Suffering from various mental health diagnoses myself, I wanted to create a project that emulated the reality of what it feels like to suffer from a mental health illness. Social situations can make me dissociate a lot, which ultimately makes me feel like I’m not there, or outside my body. I feel like a ghost, somebody who is there but in a parallel dimension. In this project I use the metaphor of a ghost to depict that dissociative feeling and to illustrate the invisibility of mental health illnesses. Furthermore, I want to exaggerate the detachment these conditions create for those suffering by using everyday anxieties such as food, the home and outside social scenarios.
