"Into the Realm of Autism"
Digital Print on Canvas

Main Aspects in this concept as follows:

A thin veil between two co-existing worlds with our world & their inner world
Manequinn heads-their fear to make eye contact with others & the spectrum range of normalcy or impairments in all of us
Boy hugging himself in stone-Petrified state of being or scared to interact with others
Face cage-imprisoned state of noncommunicable expression
Closed eyes-the fear to make eye contact with others
Barbed wire spiraling around him-a barricade symbol of not liking to be touched
Boy falling in water portal-the tendency to resist to participate in the real world with emotional fits
Upper left corner-thew black hole of synapses in the brain or unknown cause of Autism
