Derived from my interest in emergencies and disastrous scenarios, this piece focuses on anxiety as a measure of safety, articulating it as a readily available emergency provision. It is a psychological state frequently hovering and retains power in its fragility. Writing is a prominent medium in my art practice, and this phrase simply resonates within me a true sentiment towards anxiety. This large scale installation presents 29 balloon letters filled with helium, 24 rocks, and a combination of both synthetic and cotton strings.
