Mental Disorder

Il designer inglese Patrick Smith e i suoi Mental Disorder Posters.

Se si soffre di depressione, disturbo ossessivo compulsivo, o agorafobia … beh, allora sei semplicemente pazzo, non è vero?

A dire il vero, no. La malattia mentale è come qualsiasi altra malattia: si tratta di una condizione, di solito curabile, e non una definizione di carattere di una persona.
E’ proprio questo che Patrick Smith cerca di comunicare con la sua arte grafica minimalista.

Per molti, probabilmente, potrebbe sembrare un po’ riduttivo o comunque da considerarsi un’interpretazione visiva semplicistica o troppo pop, viste le tematiche in questione, ma credo che un’iconografia così semplificata e di impatto, ci permetta una presa di coscienza immediata nei confronti di queste patologie.

La forza di questo progetto consiste nel portare lo spettatore ad un conflitto emozionale, inizialmente stimolato con piacere dalle forme ed i colori, alla drastica presa di coscienza del significato che questa messa in scena nasconde.

  1. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I think that you should publish more about this topic, it might not be
    a taboo matter but generally people don’t discuss these topics. To the next! Kind regards!!
