Hoard

Shaun Strack's avatar Shaun Strack

This is an attempt to assemble and craft a physical encapsulation of a life with mental health struggles, and to foster compassion in the viewer as they explore the space and narrative frozen in time. Hoarding is (often) a physical manifestation of mental health struggles. It is fetishized through cheaply produced media content offering viewers diluted psychological evaluations of deeply complex pain. And though society has largely become more aware and compassionate regarding mental health, this symptom of internal struggle is seemingly still acceptable to ostracize.
