In this series, I explore the notion that the unseen or unknowable is often more frightening than the explicit. When faced with something that is abstract or fragmentary but also inexplicably disturbing, the human mind tends to fill in the gaps and create some sort of explanation for what one sees—sometimes these explanations can be more frightening than the reality. Furthermore, generic cues may shape the way we perceive a piece; I was concerned with intertextual references in my work, particularly when considering the horror genre’s proclivity towards producing tropes. In my work, I wanted to create scenes that are vague and surreal yet unsettling, and which demand from the viewer a clarifying narrative. This series was conceptualized as part of my coursework for my MSc in Design & Digital Media. All pieces were created using personal photos in Adobe Photoshop.
