When anxiety occurs, there is no end in sight, no hope, and chaos is like a spiral staircase. This feeling is very similar to the feeling of anxiety. The broken mirror is like an emotional outlet. The random context I’m trying to convey is the ambiguity of anxiety and the loss of control. Wrapping gives me a sense of protection and capture, and I added this wrapping element to the design. Also, I added crumpled paper balls as an element to develop the theme of anxiety. When anxiety occurs, countless evasive thoughts are mapped onto crumpled spitballs and pile up. I took those elements and incorporated them into my design.
