This collection of thrillers is temptingly twisted. Each novel revealing a section of the mind unfamiliar and terrifying to say the least. They emphasize the psychology of their characters and their unstable emotional states. Read these stories and investigate the characters perceptions, thoughts, distortions, as they struggle to grasp reality. Each story will leave you with a view of the world from which you’ve never seen before.
Visual inspiration came from my forensic science research on blood stains in connection to the murder weapon(s) used in each novel.
Inspired by the murderous nature of these book covers, Meg wanted people to experience them in an environment as creepy as the stories themselves. Using plastic tarps, duct tape, and lots of fake blood Meg displayed the books under little light and on the floor forcing the viewer to crouch down to see them as if they were investigating a crime scene.
The animations accompany the books on a tall pedestal with music that will leave you crawling in your own skin.
