The Sunken Place


The “Sunken Place” is metaphorically the place we have fallen into when we are oppressed, feeling powerless and incapable to intervene and change the situation, often choosing silence as a sign of submission to this oppressive psychological normality.

This series seeks to depict the sense of oppression experienced within such a toxic environment, allegorically visualizing all those emotional transitions that take place when we are in the “Sunken Place”.
