Series 1.3 - Stuffed Reality
Stuffed Reality is based on the theme of isolation, mental illness and how your surroundings can effect your inner thoughts.
The setting for each image is juxtaposed to the thoughts of the subject. Flashback Symphony shows four friends on the bears birthday. The bear is with his close friends and objects that are meant to be emote positive childhood nostalgia, therefore the subject is meant to feel happy and grateful for what he has. He is not allowed to feel down, as why should he be?
The bear is struggling to deal with his emotions and is suffering from being unable to voice his feelings. This is represented through the backdrop of the image. As the foreground is colourful, which is visible to all, the derelict backdrop represent the inner workings of the subjects mind.
This image and the rest of the series aims to spread an awareness for those who suffer in silence.
