— The Anxious State —
Installation with series of mixed media posters
The evolution of my anxious mind and it's fragile states is a self-exploration of my current and past state through visualization and research while trying to understand anxiety what it is not only for me, but also generally. Talking openly about this issue and how it influences me and others and not being scared of judgement.
"Anxiety cannot be avoided, but it can be reduced. The problem of the management of anxiety is that of reducing anxiety to normal levels, and then to use this normal anxiety as stimulation to increase one's awareness, vigilance, zest for living." I believe that anxiety is part of personality as a quality that has been passed through genetically, and it can be managed for the greater good. I agree with Howard Liddell , that anxiety accompanies intellectual activity as it's shadow and that the more we will know about anxiety, the more we will know about intellect. If there would be no anxiety, no stress, no nervous people then the world would stop. The concern, the tension, the anxiety about tomorrow and the day after that keeps us going and digging deeper everyday.
