PERSONAL PROJECT: DETACHMENT OF REALITY


DETACHMENT OF REALITY, a personal project by yours truly, is a journey through the state of dissociation. The serie reflects a state of mind in which certain thoughts, emotions, perceptions and memories are placed temporarily 'on hold' or shows less consistency. 



When you enter the streets, you enter the state of daydreams. Everyone’s mind is drifting away and they lose the attention to their surroundings as they’re concentrated very busy with something. It is commonly displayed on a continuum. 



In this sense it is just a mechanism to unwind, a defense mechanism, in seeking to master, minimize or tolerate stress – including boredom or conflict.

More in-depth, it describes with or without alterations in personal identity or sense of self. These alterations can include: A sense that self or the world is unreal.
