Work and words by Tatumn Scout Manz-Dumbarton.

Alice in Wonderland Syndrome is a term used to describe the distortion of a person’s perception.

Objects may appear larger or smaller; closer or farther away. Distortions may also occur for other senses.

Named after Lewis Carroll’s Alice and her experiences in Wonderland, these illusions and hallucinations have similarities to those reported by people under the influence of psychedelics.

The aim of this series of images is to visually represent symptoms of the syndrome through a combination of postproduction techniques, colour, symbolism and aspects of The Uncanny.
