Lauren AP 3D - Score: 4

  1. 1. PHOBIAS
  2. 2. Through my concentration pieces I attempted to display phobias, irrational or extreme fears. If one can name their fear or create a representation of it, it is scientifically proven to be easier to overcome. Some of the fears portrayed are very specific, while others are more universal.
  3. 3. I began my concentration with one of the most common fears, the fear of birds, Orinthophobia, represented in images 1 and 2. This fear was propagated by Alfred Hitchcock’s film, The Birds. As a representation of the fear, along with it’s iconic history I used a silhouette of a raven. I found my inspiration for images 3 and 4 from a waitress whose tree was struck during a storm and was left with Astraphobia, the fear of lightning. I return to a very common fear, Arachnophobia, the fear of spiders, in images 5 and 6. A rather unusual fear is the subject of 7 and 8. The fear of ugliness or becoming ugly, Cacophobia, is represented by a once beautiful dress that has become damaged and exposed.
  4. 4. Just as a woman has no control over signs of aging; holes and burn marks slowly creep up the dress until it is completely deteriorated. My next piece, displayed in images 9 and 10, is the fear of insanity, Maniaphobia. The wire head depicts a mental cage with the shackles leaving it a prisoner to the mind. The final piece, images 11 and 12, is the most common fear in humans. Necrophobia, the fear of death, is normal, however, the impending process of dying is more frightening than death itself. By having a blood bag drip into a broken hourglass I embody the time limit on life.
