Trapped Behind the Mind

This wall-mounted sculpture represents the stages of being overwhelmed by one's own mind, conveying the subjective and personal nature of this experience through visual symbolism and form. The piece invites viewers to reflect upon their own relationship to their mind and coping mechanisms, considering the impact of overwhelming thoughts and emotions on the self and how one navigates the world. 

The sculpture depicts the human mind as an extremely powerful and complicated thing, but also highlights the debilitating effects of anxiety and the constant flood of thoughts that can lead to feelings of being overwhelmed and losing oneself. The first figure on the left is depicted as completely intact, but as the sculpture progresses to the right, the figures become increasingly cracked and covered by darkness, highlighting the gradual descent into overwhelming thoughts and emotions.
