Horror vacui or cenophobia in visual art is the fear of empty space. It is filling the entire surface on an artwork with detail. I learned from an artist friend who teaches Philippine Studies that this is one of the characteristics of Filipino designs - like how most Filipinos tend to fill up the walls with pictures and diplomas of the members of the family, calendars, movie posters or even photos of their idol celebrities. I guess many of my lomographs display this quality that speak much of my being a Filipino - a proud Filipino. In sync with this theme of horror vacui I took portraits of my friends playing with tarp bags while we were in Bohol, Doubled my shots with prophecy posters and an assortment of items at home.
