Fear Interpretation

When beginning this assignment I wanted to create a visual representation of the fear of being followed. My partner, Erin, told me that she is petrified of someone watching her, without her knowing. I chose to depict a silhouette styled portrait of two people. I left some features out so that the viewer could interpret the idea of anonymity. Living in New York, this fear has become more of a reality for Erin, and I wanted to show a real human face in my visual. Seeing human features can attach emotional meaning when looking at any kind of art. I wanted the viewer to consider who was watching who, in this work. I think it can be taken differently among different people with diverse fears.
