  • Issue #05 - Fear
  • Fear is a distressing emotion aroused by a perceived threat. Some people can control their fear, others get scared into chaos and their senses run riot, causing illness and sometimes heart attacks.

    In today’s culture we are exposed to new experiences, materials, emotions which test our danger mechanisms in new and surprising ways. As modern life brings about the advent of new diseases, new technologies, and the threat of terrorism, contemporary society advances into a paranoid culture that is capable of manufacturing new phobias every day.

    In an attempt to understand today’s fears and it’s many facets, we have invited artists from all over the world to illustrate an A – Z of phobias. Ranging from irrational fear of hair, to understandable avoidance of guns and bullets, join us in this unorthodox encyclopedia of Fear and see what people are afraid of around the world.
