Will it be like this forever?

The artist spent six months conducting Skype interviews with people suffering from severe phobias. Redsky66 tells the story of a man who has Apeirophobia (fear of eternity) and what happens when he sends a viral tweet. It draws on Waters’ own experience of having an extreme phobia, and examines how such anxiety disorders are amplified in the digital age.
