UNDER PRESSURE

Under Pressure is a series about striving to the American Dream, but failing miserably. My generation, the millennial, is a very perfectionist one, and we experience a lot of pressure to achieve great things. We can be anything we want to be, but when you fail to achieve your goal, it’s no-one’s fault but your own. There’s a lot of depression, burn-outs, anxiety and other psychological complaints going around. The American Dream isn’t just a American concept, it’s a global one. We see American imagery every day, through social media, TV, movies, magazines and more. These images follow us around, saying we need to strive to be like that. Under Pressure is about the perfect American images, but with a darker twist. It’s ok to not get to see your dream come true, it’s ok to not achieve the happy ending the movies told you about. It’s about being real in a fake world.
