   I am only interested in the ideas that become obsessive and make me feel uneasy. The ideas that I'm afraid of.

A conceptual, experimental exploration developed  over a few intense months. This project explores eating disorders; the physical and psychological aspects during the struggle. After years of being in recovery, the idea of eating disorders still makes me feel uneasy. It still sparks obsessive thoughts at times, but mostly, it is an idea I am equally afraid of, as I am interested in delving into. 

This work is the result of months of experimenting with the same idea, months of taking self-portraits, continuously and in varied ways. A process of experimentation with different mediums. It plays, tackles and considers the idea over and over in hopes that it finally transcends.
