min

‘Overload’ is an account of the feelings and sensations surrounding episodes of anxiety/panic attack brought on by sensory overload, expressed in a surrealist dreamscape. Symbolism of autistic mindsets can be found woven into the fabric of the work - such as camouflaging (masking), estrangement and the unending search for an elusive moment of balance.
