A Child’s Worst Nightmare


Project Description

More often than not, parents partake in the induction of nightmares in little children on a daily basis. This is evident in the use of a disciplinary approach that involves instrumental lying, a manipulative practice that leverages on the fundamental premise of fear to threaten and scare the child into compliance. A Child’s Worst Nightmare is a project that attempts to bring to light the immediate ramifications that stem from the lie in terms of visual imagery, as well as discourage this abusive practice that instills a warped sense of morality and decorum.
