Trigger Warning: The following contains sounds and images used to depict a panic attack.


XIETY explores the ways anxiety may feel for those who suffer from it through a visual journey in Val's mind- XIETY. Val struggles to stay mentally present during a night out with friends. What may seem like a simple, fun, and relaxing night for others is physical and mental torture for Val. Her anxiety quickly builds up to a panic attack and she finds herself stuck in her mental world of XIETY.
