Crisis

“Crisis” is a project that I am undergoing with the help of various performing artists to create awareness for Alzheimer’s and the loss of identity that comes with it. I have seen first hand what Alzheimer’s can do in a short period to the individual and the family surrounding them.

As the disease progresses and affecting the mind, the individual begins to slip into a trance like state and lose what used to make them, them.

Heavy shadows and the lack of facial features aids in the concept that they aren’t themselves anymore. I have chosen performing artist for this project as they are experts in showing emotion through body language and the instruments they use.
