Horror Vacui - Hoarding by Denise Ugolini
About the artwork
This photograph represent the idea of compulsive hoard. Hoarding is a relativety unknown disorder in which the person store up all the things he is unable to let go. Since hoarding has some roots in the idea of dying I decided to 'hoard' dried flower, which are a way to represent something that was once beauty, but is being kept far beyond their purpose.
