dc.description.abstract Why am I so afraid all the time? Why do I feel so alone? Why can't I just be like everyone else? This thesis is an attempt to find answers to these and other questions that I face every day—it unearths the very assumptions and perceptions that make up the reality I experience. My strategy is to create a visual context, a common denominator with the outside world so differences and inaccuracies between my perceptions and those of others' become readily apparent. Magazines are a real, physical part of our common cultural landscape and they play a role, even if only a small one, in how we understand the world at large. By collaging magazine images I can reshape the reality they present into something more familiar to my own and hopefully, in the process, learn how to reshape my life into the one I long for. en_US
