The deflated disco ball has emerged as a totem for mental health in Malia Gomez’s ongoing body of work, Anxiety Monster. Functioning as a self-portrait for many, the deflated disco underscores that no matter how deflated we find ourselves in life, we still have an inner light to shine out to the world.
