Emotional barriers are defined as mental walls that keep people from openly communicating their thoughts and feelings to others.


This work explores an abstract term with a physical manifestation of an emotional barrier. It exposes the events, emotions and experiences that took part in its creation with a childish imagination. 


Using imagery that represents the perspective of a child, the work reminds us what existed within us before these barriers were created and suggests that we can slowly dissolve the meaning we attached to various experiences.
