Artist Statement

This installation is a minimalist expression of human suffering caused by mental illness. These disorders can be difficult to confront and are often dismissed due to the social stigmas attached to them. Methods such as deep pressure therapy, which has been integrated into the piece can be used to mentally and physically ground an individual. Vitality reflects how people who suffer from mental illness have a profound impact on the lives with whom they come into contact, deliberating on a condition that affects so many.
