Apeirophobia

Apeirophobia
Photo Description:
This work is focussed on the paradoxical fear and desire that people have with the infinite. While we fear the infinite (infinite space, infinite time) because it would disprove our uniquity in the universe, we also find comfort in it. We create religions to make ours lives infinite (life after death, cycles, etc.), and the idea of an end or limit makes us feel pointless. In this piece I explore different symbols from this obsession.
