In her project, Hunter composes an abstract, broken narrative inspired by the mental-health condition Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Drawing viewers in through a sense of mystery and apparent “emptiness,” this cloud-like arrangement of photographs invokes themes of fragmentation, duality, and repetition—tropes common to both narrative strategies and OCD itself. Through this personal yet quietly dramatic approach, Hunter fosters a sense of empathy from this well-known, yet often misunderstood, disorder.
