Archiatric is a series by artist Federico Babina which seeks to architecturally interpret mental illnesses and disorders. The artist has commented that he doesn’t wish to put a romantic aura around the discomfort and suffering arising out of mental illness, but rather to present a reflection of the prejudices and negative stigmas with which the pathologies of the mind are often observed.
Rejigit recognises the empathetic sympathy Federico must have with those affected by mental disorder. The visual message imparted by each image is such that the nature of the individual disorders as depicted may be easily discernible sans title.
Federico Babina is an Italian architect and graphic designer based in Barcelona.
