Anxiety is an interactive video project meant to simulate the feelings of social anxiety.
This piece explores the expectations and discomfort that those with social anxiety face in everyday interactions.
In this piece, the viewer is made to interact with people conversing in a living room. By using the mouse to scroll, the viewer has the option of interacting with the left or right side of the room.
Anxiety slowly builds as the viewer's attempts to talk only end in stutters.
As the anxiety builds up, the viewpoint starts to become blurry until the only option the viewer has left is to retreat back to his or her room to calm down.
