If you had to imagine your mental illness or disorder as a house, what would it look like?


Show Full Text

Federico Babina has just released a new project called Archiatric, which depicts 16 different conditions as works of architecture in various states of repair. The designs are chillingly abstract, but for anyone living with the agony of mental illness, they're all too accurate. An animated video posted to the Barcelona-based digital artist's YouTube page further intensifies the effect of the images.

Babina is known for architecture-inspired work, using a unique geometric style that takes clear notes from cubism. His designs are often surreal, yet underlined with cheeky humour.

I truly can relate. This is me. I got Asperger, a form of autism where you are actually pretty smart.

This depicts very well the bits and pieces of memory and habit that linger with this disease. The cracks are nearly all the way through, excellent.
