7th_2013When a girl gets off at the wrong bus stop on her way to meet a new friend, she finds herself alone in a part of the city she is unfamiliar with. As she nervously navigates herself through dark Los Angeles streets, she is overcome with terror. ┬áThe real threat, however, does not come from the streets… This piece is meant to capture the paranoia and anxiety experienced by people, particularly women, when they find themselves alone and outside in a strange environment. This level of paranoia can drive a normally rational person to fear everything around them, and yet when they once again find themselves in a familiar environment they can lower their defenses… to disastrous consequences.
