This project is a conceptual abstraction of the self-portrait. As a man of various anxieties and social disorders, I base the majority of my identity on that which lies below the skin. Matched with a lifelong curiosity in the sciences, I have the desire to capture the neural and chemical reactions that make up the emotional responses arising throughout my daily routine. I feel a million different things; a mixture of both good and bad. These self-portraits act as therapy for these social disorders; something that you cannot typically see, as the signs are not blatant. In milder forms you can completely fly under the radar, incognito, inconspicuous, on a good day. This project is a way of assigning a face to a name; imagery to the subcutaneous.
