Historical Context:
This series of digital images is focused around the concept of paranoia and anxiety. My goal is transport the viewer into a specific paranoia causing anxiety within each corresponding image, allowing the viewer to experience and recognize common anxiety causing events in a symbolic and film noir-esque way. Each image has an overlying theme of a specific anxiety causing paranoia combined with an openness of symbolic cues and underlying themes in popular culture, which allows the viewer to enhance their viewing experience of the images through the use of personal connections and their own unique background knowledge.
