Skye Galvin, Love Me, Now Die



Through self-portraiture I have visually recreated my state of mind living through coercive control by my stalker. I have constructed scenes in the same rooms I became confined to. Instead of my stalker, you now take his place. The point at which coercion becomes illegal is being thoroughly debated around the world.  In my life, I never understood how someone could control someone with nothing but words, until it became my reality.Stalking is stereotyped by the media as admirable. I now wish to show what is rarely portrayed by the media, the aftermath left behind. Most people know me as Skye, but this series unveiled my true identity of actually being called Emma. Skye is another layer I can hide behind, for now he may be gone, but for me he always remains.
