ABOUT THE PIECE:
Things That Go Bump in the Night: Phobias and Other Demented Musings
“What are fears but voice airy?
Whispering harm where harm is not.
And deluding the unwary
Till the fatal bolt is shot!” -William Wordsworth
Your fears take center stage in this playfully twisted show that explores the fear of spiders (arachnophobia), the fear of the dark (nyctophobia), the fear of heights (acrophobia), and the fear of ghosts (spectrophobia). But alas, you are not tied to these specific fears. Don’t be “afraid” to replace any of these with your own fears… clowns, tight spaces, being outside, or germs, for example.
Originally titled “Phobias”, commissioned by Mr. Tim Decker for Rancho Cotate HS (Rohnert Park, CA)
