Abstract

My interest lies in the anxiety that humans worry so much about. It’s amazing that a dark room can become so many things. It can be a box where monsters are born, it can be an endless void of sorrow, or it can contain ghosts that haunt you. Stress and anxiety trigger your mind to wander. You question why you’re scared and your imagination runs wild. When you’re in the dark, you’re terrified of anything foreign touching you and your mind tells you there's a figure ten feet in front of you. First you hear something, then you smell something, eventually your eyes will wander and you’ll be able to feel the air, then your brain has to process those inputs simultaneously. Your survival instincts kick in and your brain needs you to survive. Your brain needs to assess the situation and act accordingly. Your brain asks itself, “Do I need to leave? Is something behind me? What exactly am I looking at?.” Your anxiety will take control of your mind and body.
