'anoxia'

(nɒksɪə/)

NOUN technical :

"an absence of oxygen."

MEDICINE:

"an absence or deficiency of oxygen reaching the tissues; severe hypoxia."

Art director Xinyi Xu teams up with photographer Ying Zhi, stylist Xiauyu Chen and the production crew at Dot Comme Studios to create 'Anoxia' where the vivid act of inner-wrestling within one's heart is translated into a visual display of the struggle. Working with intense shades of red, Anoxia looks into how heartbreak and emotional distress can cause the heart to feel like going into an emotional hypoxia.
