The „Psychosis“ project represents some of the most strange, unknown and at the same time curious mental illness. Through the use of shapes and colors (edited with Cinema 4D and Photoshop), each artwork represents a different syndrome.
I have chosen a skull as the main subject because all the illustrated syndromes are typical of an alteration of the human psyche. Some of them are more or less famous, such the „Schizophrenia“ or the „Obsessive Compulsive Disorder“. But others are totally unimaginable, like the „Capgras Syndrome“, a disorder in which a person holds a delusion that a friend, spouse, parent, or other close family member (or pet) has been replaced by an identical-looking impostor. That’s totally freaky!
Often we do not realize how much our brain can be powerful and dangerous. Many do not even have the slightest idea of the existence of these syndromes despite in the world there are thousands of people who suffer from it. That‘s precisely the reason that pushed me to create the “Psychosis” series.
