10 mg

10 mg
by Fiona Penn

This is a video I made called “10 mg”. A 60 second self portrait with homemade sounds. It’s a short narrative about me and anxiety. It’s not a broad commentary on anxiety itself or the pharmaceutical industry; I can only speak to my own experience.

It’s weird because I want to say “I hope this resonates with people”, because I feel like that’s what you’re supposed to hope for your art, but that feels like a strange sentiment for this piece. I really hope my anxiety doesn’t resonate with you because anxiety sucks, for lack of a better word (sorry Mom). But if it does resonate, or whatever, know that it all gets easier over time and that as stupid as they sound, stress balls can actually help.
