Anxiety is a self-portrait series where the artist explores her personal experience with anxiety through photography, video and text. The photographs are taken at specific moments of high anxiety to show the intensity of anxiety in the artists face. The videos showcase methods of relaxation through the repetition of breath. The text is composed of several psychological self-assessment tests used for evaluating anxiety. Anxiety allows the viewer to have an emotional experience through the clinical and honest approach of the artist’s exploration of her own anxiety.
