Heartstrings Collapse

Heartstrings Collapse explores the cross-over between physicality and emotionality. Glitches, which appear through a microscopy photographic process, describe the relationship one has to their own internal body: Inherent but unfamiliar. They behave as vulnerabilities in the technology’s anatomy, abstractly exposing themselves. Although internal workings aren’t typically seen, emotions physically manifest themselves through involuntary malfunctions, like a stream of sweat down the forehead from anxiety, cheeks turning red from embarrassment, or a choke when lost for words.

The series adopts such physical manifestations of emotions as image titles, such as Tremble, Sweat, Choke, Twitch, Palpitate and Blush.
