Landscape of The Mind - Vivid 2017

Landscape of the Mind is a research-derived art installation which explores deeply personal experiences of anxiety through body map drawings which chart emotions and physical sensations that may be difficult to express verbally. 

We’re using body mapping to explore the experience of anxiety and the ubiquitousness of anxiety in our society. It allows people to voice their experience in a way that is less stigmatising.”

Dr Katherine Boydell, Professor of Mental Health at Black Dog Institute

Much like totems that contain symbols with different meanings, body-mapping and its significance can only be understood in relation to the creator’s overall story and experience.

  Curator  Natalie Robinson  is passionate about using art to raise awareness about mental health. With a background in digital media, she is excited to be part of an age where mediums collide and the lines are blurred between new technology and traditional media.
