safe and excite

So I think I finally know the direction my work is heading in although the actuall piece is still very far from being even a thought in my mind- the gap is closing in though. Firstly I want to look at Hysteria.

Hysteria (Definition taken from
an uncontrollable outburst of emotion or fear, often characterized by irrationality, laughter, weeping, etc.
Psychoanalysis . a psychoneurotic disorder characterized by violent emotional outbreaks, disturbances of sensory and motor functions, and various abnormal effects due to autosuggestion.

Hysteria although defined medically as a psychoneurotic disorder can effect more then just the individual thats called mass hysteria which is when a group of people think the same way regarding an issue and this produces fear which can get out of control as each member is feeding of anothers fear. An example of this is Doomsday preachers, how many people have heard of the 2012 doomsday? Riots are also produced by fear.

Hillsborough disaster

 The Hillborough disaster happened on the 15th of April 1989 at Hillsborough football stadium. 96 people were killed and 766 were injured all of which were fans of Liverpool F.C, its gone down in history as the deadliest stadium related disaster in British history and even one of the worst international football accidents.
