“Hyperstimulation” is a series of photographs that use overlapping imagery and bright, vivid color to create conversation by inducing the overwhelming feeling of anxiety. “Hyperstimulation” is a visual representation of a "stress response," which is the physiological action that the body takes in a fight or flight situation. Although stress responses take many forms, visual hyperstimulation usually manifests as ghosted images, shimmers, blurs, and can feel as if one is in a surreal and dreamlike state.
