Inclusion of Quotations?

Refering back to the ideas I’ve had through this project of adding words in some way as a means to communicate to the viewer, I have done some tester’s on how I could present these words in my work. I have also taken some quotes from my sources, the mental disorder sufferers, which I think will help me convey their paranoia and fear. I will find more as I go on.
