Fear - A Psychological Construct
Video Diptych

Fear is a natural, powerful and primitive human emotion. We limit ourselves based on something that does not exist. It is a psychological construct, something that we created in our heads, yet we find it hard to control this feeling that arises within us. This video diptych is the representation of the emotions and thoughts that overwhelm me when I am alone in the dark. It portrays the constant unease of someone creeping behind, parallel to the feelings I face.

Overcoming our fears is not easy, some come and go over time. We have to take small steps to get over these feelings so as to not obstruct ourselves from the opportunities in life. Having repeated exposure to similar situations leads to familiarity and helps us slowly reduce our fears. Hence, we must stop avoiding our fears and learn to face them.
