This has to do with depression. I wanted to created a self-portrait that visually articulated what it is like, when i sink into this dark place.
At first, depression is a welcome relief, from the lack of insomnia, mania brings. Sleep comes, so softly, at first, then my need for it becomes insatiable. I am too tired to care about anything, which is a welcome change, at least, initially. Then the hopelessness sets in, feelings of self-loathing, being overwhelmed by everything. That feeling i will never accomplish anything, never make the most of what i am meant to be, in this lifetime.
