My project revolves around the concept of maladaptive daydreaming, and how it is used as a coping mechanism that becomes a regular habit and difficult to stop. Those that daydream constantly find themselves indulging more within their fantasies, rather than staying grounded in the real world. In times like these where the reality of things is incredibly stressful and can be overwhelming, one of the easiest ways to stay comfortable is to be able allow the mind to wander freely, to act as a distraction. My cultural identity plays a key factor in my own experiences with my daydreams, my project is an exploration of how to visually interpret these experiences. Through a series of illustrations, I look into how fantasies act as a source of comfort and solace, and how they can develop over time, as well as look into what can cause these fantasies to grow more complex.
