One in four people will develop a mental illness in their lifetime. Using my own experiences with depression, my work attempts to portray just how debilitating a depressive swing can be, and how hard it can be to break out of. During these times, I retreat to my bed which initially can be a safe haven to protect me from the world, but can also easily become an all-consuming prison leaving me feeling hollow and cut off from reality.
Using photography and sculptural pieces I create installations that are intended to highlight the issues of mental illness and hopefully remove their taboo status, opening up a dialogue with the audience. < br/>
