Dysmorphia

Rachel Britton's avatar Rachel Britton Vote Code: 67037

"Dysmorphia" reflects the descent from reality into obsessive states of mind. Influenced by body dysmorphic disorder—the preoccupation with real or imagined flaws of the physical body that produces behaviors such as hair pulling, skin picking, and looking in mirrors often—I am fascinated with the overwhelming presence of the disorder in people’s lives. I distort reality through digital manipulation and lighting effects to reflect the mind in turmoil driven by these hidden and obsessive traits.
