Artist's statement

This image has been taken from a current project which examines how children are expressing their feelings and anxieties in reaction to the constant stimuli being generated by modern society. There is also an attempt to visualize these fears through the filtered memory of my own childhood experiences. Are the emotional responses the same, or has there been a fundamental shift in how children perceive, interact and cope with their environment?
