I am making a series of clothing that on first observation look just like ordinary items of clothing. Then on closer inspection one will see neuron type images ‘leaking’ from the fabric, usually on the inside. This is to represent the hidden nature of mental illness, where commonly only the person suffering from it knows that it is happening. Within the series of clothing will be some items that people can try on, hopefully giving them a taste of what it may be like to experience mental distress, if only momentarily.
