Description: This project seeks to explain that anxiety can be understood by looking through multiple theoretical lenses; namely sociology, psychology and philosophy, to create a holistic view of the phenomenon.
An astounding 18% of adults 18 and older in the United States suffer from an anxiety disorder. It is a least uncomfortable and at most debilitating, but, where anxiety has the ability to isolate, art has the ability to bring together. Nicolas Bourriaud calls art “a site that produces specific sociability,” and I argue that art has the potential to support exchanges that may not occur in modern daily life.
