The project "Depersonlization. Derealization" is inspired by the the symptoms with the same name, experienced by people facing mental health issues. By using a traditional technique (analogue photography and bleaching the print, I decided to imagine the interactions between a person suffering from those symptoms, and other people or the outside world. During a crisis, reality can become distorted, the person can lose their feeling of identity and can become lost and confused, even to the extent of experiencing hallucinations and feeling detached by everyone and everything.
It is my strong belief that mental illness deserves a representation in art, as it is perceived as a topic which must not be discussed, but in reality it can be relieving and useful to address it.
