#institutionalization

MOST RECENT

A tiny little dream came true today: I finally got to take photos of the inside of the Crease Building at Riverview Hospital. I don’t carry the Hasselblad around every day anymore like I used to, so the photos are phone photos, but I think that’s going to have to change after today. I even looked at the Blad sitting on the kitchen table this morning after having been broken out for the first time in months on the weekend to document the birthday of @ragebot and @meow_miiix ‘s first born child, and didn’t bring it along. And while @brendonhartley and @samanthastroman already took so many beautiful photos of these rooms, analog and hand printed, it was amazing to get to sneak off and frame my own images in just a few short moments while my crew didn’t need me down in the boiler room, hoping a door didn’t slam behind me and that my radio didn’t miraculously stop working as I was desiccated by ghosts. #asylum #institutionalization #madnessandcivilization #riverview #windowlight #nofilter #colourohotographs #candystoreoflight #flavours

I FEEL ON THIS. My journey has so nomadic. And well the lower vibrational sides to life had me feeling a bit entrapped. I'm here in California at a #VolunteersofAmerica #Shelter and it definitely has shed light on the very things Christ would have me see #homelessness #woman #christworldorder #amahwehyaat
Condtions are not so great for the homeless. I've been through a lot that gives me more insight into the changes I WANT TO SEE. This was a treat for me. I was in New York when we all learned of what went down. It wasnt right. But now you know. And you still come out on top and bring more heads up with you. Welcome Back King 💖💌💨
Regrann from @meekmill - I’d like to thank God, my family, my friends, my attorneys, my team at Roc Nation including Jay Z, Desiree Perez, my good friend Michael Rubin, my fans, The Pennsylvania Supreme Court and all my public advocates for their love, support and encouragement during this difficult time. While the past five months have been a nightmare, the prayers, visits, calls, letters and rallies have helped me stay positive. To the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office, I’m grateful for your commitment to justice – not only for my case, but for others that have been wrongfully jailed due to police misconduct. Although I’m blessed to have the resources to fight this unjust situation, I understand that many people of color across the country don’t have that luxury and I plan to use my platform to shine a light on those issues. In the meantime, I plan to work closely with my legal team to overturn this unwarranted conviction and look forward to reuniting with my family and resuming my music career.

Dedicated to my mentally ill brethren; May we one day be free of the stigma

Last day at #MarkRothko Art Centre today and it is the #exhibition opening. With my #InstitutionalPortrait I explore the dynamics within art institutions and the role of lower #staff within the #artworld. The #insignificant within the important, the #personal within the institution. -

With my #InstitutionalPortrait I explore the dynamics within art institutions and the role of lower #staff within the #artworld. I spent the first few days here at #MarkRothko Art Centre exploring the exhibition rooms, events halls, storage spaces and back rooms of the building. Wearing the staff’s #uniform I imagined the influence the #building would have on me if I were to stay and work here for a longer period of time. The #quietness, the #boredom, the #institutionalization became the main elements of the work; the #insignificant within the important, the #personal within the institution. -

I is about Avoiding long-term institutionalisation

My mother’s house is at Kuthiravattom, a small place near Calicut which is famous for the marvellous Kuthiravattom Pappu, actor and comedian. But it is also a place that hosts Kerala’s oldest Mental Health Institution. It was established by the British and was nicknamed ‘Branthan Jail’ which translates to Prison for the mentally ill. I have been the butt of several ‘is-your-entire-family-crazy because-you-are-from-Kuthiravattom’ jokes throughout my life. I used to find these jokes funny till my mother actually started working at the Mental Institute there, as SuperIntendent. I would be there in the evenings waiting for her to finish work. I would hear stories about what it means to be sick and be in there, but the stories that worried me more were about what it means to be completely cured and yet having to live there because you have no place to go. Later as my sister studied at NIMHANS Bangalore, I would stay with her, sometimes within the campus. I have volunteered at the rehabilitation center NIMHANS, helping out with my design skills and sewing skills. NIMHANS has a beautiful campus and gardens that I hadnot seen at a mental health care center before.
In the 19th and early 20th century, asylums were the main form of care for patients with severe mental illness. Inpatient psychiatric hospital services are still considered an essential type of care in psychiatry today, as community care may not be suitable for all patients, especially those with acute mental illness and a lack of support. Now some bit for the design folks, the structural design of psychiatric hospitals can play a role in the treatment process. The architectural layout of asylums originated from a belief that cure could not occur unless psychiatric patients were isolated from their familiar home environment and put into a suitable “therapeutic space”. But I guess as designers, we have a lot of work left to do in creating spaces that are truly therapeutic.
