Elisa Lam - Perpetual and Palpable Artistic Fear

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 23, 2014, 12:13 AM

Recently I read about the mysterious case of Elisa Lam. I didn't think much about it until, I watched the video:

Now there are many theories about what may have happened, since her body was subsequently found in a water tank. BUT the one thing that struck me in this video was the sense of fear - whether she is running from her own demons or from someone else - her fear is palpable, one can almost touch it - its so real.

It reminded me about a post I read on deviantArt about dark Art, and what constitutes dark art and I said that in order for dart art to be dart art for me, there needs to be a sense of isolation together with a creepy chill down your spine feeling. This video brought dark art to life for me, it was really a case almost of life imitating/mirroring art.

Her[Elisa Lam's]context in society is that of a fear instigator almost and an artistic revelation on what it means to be alone and additionally face fear/be confronted with fear in isolation.

Please feel free to add comments.
