About this submission

Lockdown has had an adverse impact on mental health, including my own. Many sufferers of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, in particular, have been severely affected. Despite the fact that most people associate OCD with physical compulsions, I have found that obsessive and intrusive thoughts are the hardest element to deal with. My project explores how the enforced isolation of lockdown can leave space for negative rumination, creating a distorted reality. Truman Syndrome is type of delusion, where the afflicted believes they're constantly being monitored by cameras. This illness results in great doubt of the self and the environment surrounding them.
