We’ve all had that moment: Your head is swimming with innumerable thoughts and you feel like it’s going to explode. I feel that way right now, in fact.
What I love most about this image is that it takes something completely figurative and makes it literal. It’s almost like a cautionary tale or PSA, as if overthinking is far more of a detriment to our mental or physical health than we believe it to be. The text overlay definitely makes a difference. If the text had not been layered on top, the piece may not have the same effect. The context would be lost and the viewer would be left a little confused.
