Through calm, everyday-like, but also dark and partly disgusting images, I want to create moods and associations of worrying, overthinking and anxiety. The everyday moments when worries and fears become all-consuming, and avoidance feels like the only way out. How does anxiety affect everyday life?

In the project, I have used my own emotional life as a starting point, placed in a wider context. Young people today have  grown up in seemingly safer times than ever before and with all the prerequisites for a comfortable life. Still, the number of anxiety disorders has never been higher, and is on the rise. Now, as the safe world we knew only a few years back is fading away, another question arises. How will this uncertainty affect us?
