A ‘wilfully utopian’ exploration of design for good mental health.

Project details

A bold exploration of design for mental health care environments, Madlove is a new project by artist the vacuum cleaner in collaboration with Hannah Hull.Projects Office designed this beta version of the project in collaboration with designer and researcher Benjamin Koslowski: Documentation from a range of workshops and gatherings around the country was used as the starting point for a new installation of bold beautiful structures at FACT in Liverpool as part of the ‘Group Therapy’ exhibition.

The playful structures are abstracted embodiments of the spatial qualities discussed in workshops; together, they offer a range of settings to choose from: from privacy in the ‘Cooling Tower,’ a reinterpretation of the padded cell, to conversation in the ‘Turkish Delight’ and workshops and social activity in the central ‘Oasis.’ The installation allowed for the initial testing and development of the project through live engagement with the project’s diverse range of contributors as well as the wider public.
