Cloud Headed Is an artistic persona created at the beginning of Quarantine. My body was dealing with a lot. Emotional and intimal changes, an unhealthy relationship, and being locked at home, anxiety symptoms erupting at my body with the fear of losing a loved one and being far away from my home town. Death became way too near. I felt arrhythmia every day. Cold feet. Cold hands. Jaw locked. I couldn't eat. Lost weight, I couldn't sleep. And that roller coaster feeling that COVID brought into my life resulted in post-traumatic stress syndrome. I was diagnosed just after the Quarantine exploded in my country. It almost felt like being in a cloud. I was aware of everything that was going on inside of me. Mentally. But I felt stuck. Drifting in a group of feelings that were being felt one by one, at a time. Almost no energy to react. Just letting everything go through. I intend to use my body as my own tool to manifest states on my mental health throughout Quarantine, now on our 9th month in Brazil. I believe strongly that Self-portraiture and Video performance can have the power to show things that sometimes are hidden in our unconsciousness, and also can help me heal and deal with anxiety issues.
