Madness manifest though hair: In two weeks Nadja, Joachim and I are off for a week of research, work and talking at the Narrentürm (tower of fools) in Vienna.
As sad as it is that Darwin thought madness could be illustrated through this woman’s hair, it does make you think about how differently mental health issues would be considered if they were more physically manifest. It’s very difficult to empathize with something you cannot see or relate to. This is sort of the basic root of what I’m thinking about for this project.
