A-Z of Mental Health Drugs

Created as part of 36 Days of Type 2019, this project intends to make the conversation on mental health more commonplace in our quotidian conversations. Mental illnesses manifest themselves in a variety of forms, each one as unique as the person they affect. Identifying and understanding them is no facile task, and I wish to have this difficulty as the central motif connecting my artworks. Each of the 26 pieces corresponds to an alphabet - while some of them are easy to comprehend, some are more elusive. The illusive nature of these artworks is an allusive reference to the feelings often induced by these drugs. Hover over the image to see the drug associated with that letter!
