‘Anxiety Adventure’ is a collection of works highlighting aspects of anxiety. It draws from personal experience while also inviting others to share their own understanding of the mental illness. Works in the ‘Anxiety Adventure’ collection feature insights into anxious intrusive thoughts displayed onto mattresses, jam jars and other common place items. The familiar objects become vessels to convey messages of anxiety; written statements and objects combine to take on new significances. By using these everyday items, the viewer is given the opportunity to transition their expectations from familiarity to discovery. The Anxiety Adventure series subverts expectations, it questions misconceptions and assumptions around Anxiety disorders and shows, in the case of mental illness, things may not always be as they appear.
