InvertTheWorld: Out Of Darkness

It seems that we are asked to respond to a world that is rapidly changing physically, emotionally, and environmentally. Change that is happening faster than many of us can adjust to, cope with or comprehend. As a result, it feels as if every defense we have had against severe mental health disruptions has been left vulnerable. We are being attacked and left without the resources to regulate ourselves. Out of Darkness is a collection that follows one Black man’s therapist guided journey through various stages of depression during an uncharacteristically unpredictable and grief-filled year, 2020.

Depression is lonely. Depression is darkness. Depression is wearing a mask. Depression is pressing through. Depression is messy. This art showcases what it is like to move through and acknowledge all the ways depression can show up in one's life.
