For this project, I wanted to create a response to how mental health has been depicted throughout history, in film, art, and through writing. I spent a lot of time researching various articles on the subject, gaining insight into the treatments that stemmed all the way back to the Neolithic period. I then researched different films and artists depicting the subject, with a focus on visual and emotional value. My work was documented in a small magma sketchbook, which I tried to keep in a diary-like format, which made the topic feel more natural. As a result, I have chosen 4 images from the sketchbook and enhanced them digitally, keeping the look of the sketchbook paper. To finish off this project, I created an animation using a combination of Photoshop, Premiere Pro and After Effects, using music that fitted the theme to enhance the visual and emotional response.
