This statement is on my thesis exhibition Fractured: A Self-Portrait delves into its motivations, influences, content, and form. The video installations are self-portraits that investigate my experiences with anxiety, exhibit the progression of my emotional and physical state during an anxiety attack, and explore emotional triggers. Divided into chapters, this thesis statement includes a discussion of these aspects as well as of processes, mediums, and the final layout in the Gallery.
