In polarized states of being, 
there is a disconnection, rooted in communication 
that differentiates what is acted or said to what is thought. 
The mind is a prison created by never ending thoughts 
that rapidly cycle and consume one’s being. 
In failing to clearly communicate all these thoughts, 
moods fluctuate from elevated to depressed, 
some more rapidly than others. 
I have created expressive photo collages 
using my own photographs 
as well as some appropriated images 
seeking to visually represent the mania 
and the state of entrapment within one’s own mind. 

This is a dissection and exposure of a “haunted self”.
