This is an anxiety based piece focused on what it is like to be in the midst of a panic attack. Sometimes the symptoms are different, but most of the time this is how I feel; like I am trapped behind glass. I am able to see what is happening, however it’s a surreal experience watching myself go through the attack, but unable to stop it.
It wanted to do a piece based on maintaining my composure, especially in public. The yarn is like an analogy for life; it was hard to tie and even now keeps slipping off, but I just have to try harder and keep tying it despite the difficulty. This is 9 different canvases so that the cracks show through. It represents how impossible a task it is to remain impervious all the time.
