Amy Fleming, b. 1994, is an artist who is exploring themes of belief, evidence, reality, and the need for human connection. Photography as her main choice of medium, she often turns to her camera as a way to cope. By capturing small moments of time passing through video, and documenting herself and her mundane life in photographic form, Fleming is attempting to navigate her life with mental illness. Living with panic disorder, she is often questioning her day to day reality with questions like: “Did that actually happen, or did I dream that?” “Am I a real person?” “Am I having a panic attack, or is this how I’m supposed to feel?” By manipulating her photographs and videos, in camera or in post production, she is showing the viewer how she experiences her daily reality. Reflecting on past trauma, she is providing evidence to make the viewers believe that these traumas and feelings are actually part of her reality.
