*Trigger warning* This page contains some graphic images.

 

Her Collection is about a young girl struggling with a sense of emptiness and uncontrollable desire to harm other living things. After killing an animal in her back yard, she begs her younger sister for acceptance and love to no avail. Unable to cope with rejection from her entire family, she takes her mother as her first human victim and places a collection of small jewelry boxes around her body as a symbol of her own emptiness.
