Each of us is afraid of something.
About 18% of the US population suffer from diagnosable anxiety disorders. 8.7% of people suffer from specific phobias, including quite common — for example, from claustrophobia (fear of closed spaces), agoraphobia (fear of crowds or open spaces) or acrophobia (fear of heights). There are people with more unusual phobias, which are often associated with certain objects. Artist collagist David Delaruelle with an application to edit photos VSCO chose some rare phobias to make them black-and-white illustrations.
Dipsophobia (fear optical split).
The artist has had ten days to create eight images, each of which was based on one of the diagnosed rare phobias. He Delaruelle not become a victim of anxiety disorder. But he had to get into the minds of those who know about it firsthand. So he has made progress in understanding why some people are scared at first glance, the usual things. The project seemed fascinating, and he even admitted that shares the anxious feeling when trypophobia (fear of holes). “I have to say, I think they’re quite unpleasant,” said Derroll.
The technophobia (fear of technology).
Image Delaruelle resemble the mood of the films of Alfred Hitchcock, and this is no coincidence. They are made from archival footage of the 1950s and 1960s years, the era when pop culture was colored by paranoia about the spread of Communist ideology in the world and the gradual transition of the US from organized religion to secular spiritualism.
Trypophobia (fear of holes).
As time was running out, the artist is fully immersed in the project and could not sleep at night, combining vintage photographs and imagining surreal scenarios in photoshop. According to Delaruelle, the most difficult was koumpounophobia: had to work extra hard buttons looked daunting.
Koumpounophobia (fear of buttons).
Most phobias manifested to seven years. One of the most effective methods of treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy, and specifically, the experience of the situation and preventing the usual reaction when a patient is repeatedly confronted with the object of his phobia. Over time, after many times the symptoms of panic attacks — palpitations, cold sweat, choking back.
Chronomentrophobia (fear of clocks).
Work Delaruelle — in a sense, like Hitchcock — a kind of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Ruining not only anxiety disorders, but tacit, but constant and exhausting anxiety that plague everyday life. Perhaps if faced with fears face to face, to get rid of them, at least for a while.
Hemophobia (chaetophobia — fear of hair).
Philemaphobia (fear of kissing).
Catoptrophobia (fear of mirrors).
