When Heartstrings Collapse

This series explores the cross-over between physical and emotional associa-tions. Glitches, which appeared through the artist’s photographic process through the microscope, became adopted to describe the relationship one has to their own internal body - inherently unfamiliar. They behave as vulnerabilities in the technology’s anatomy, abstractly exposing themselves. Likewise, although internal workings aren’t typically seen, human emotions do physically manifest them-selves 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.

When Heartstrings Collapse adopts physical manifestations of emotions as image titles, like Tremble, Sweat, Choke, Twitch, Palpitate and Blush.
