Dissociation

    In this self-portraiture series, I really wanted to try and express how I feel on a regular basis and try to experiment with an idea that I truly despise; the idea of having to take photos of myself. Throughout my life, there have been several moments (has happened more frequently recently) where I didn’t quite feel like I was part of my surroundings, almost as if I was detached from reality. Similar to a glitch in a video game/computer program, I felt like I was displaced from the so called “normal” reality I was in. It’s as if I glitched out of my body and my body started going through the motions. I was in a way, detached from it all. In these photos, I try to show the feeling of dissociation that I experience quite often through the normal, almost mundane, activities that I do almost every day.
