Unabridged list of fears

Artist Brian Rea lived in New York City (fear: crowds) for 11 years (fear: aging) and during his last year in the Big Apple (fear: choking on apple seeds) in 2008, he began keeping a list of fears and grouped them under these categories: physical, natural, political, random, and emotional fears. Using chalk (fear: chalk dust) and white paint (fear: paint fumes), the artist then displayed them all on a 7 meter by 3.5 meter mural, which is currently on display at a group show at the Joan Miró Foundation in Barcelona (fear: Spaniards).
