The Musuem Of Madness

The Museum of Madness is a travelling museum designed to be transported and installed across the UK to raise awareness, and challenge the stigmas of mental health. Constructed through multi-sensorial modular shipping containers, it is designed in collaboration with local creative agencies and mental health associations. The audience receives an engaging experience of mental illnesses and symptoms that give the audience a ‘taste of madness’. Projecting an experience that challenges the initial comprehension of mental illness, encourages visitors to explore the stigmas and challenges of such conditions. This immersion urges the audience to question the complexity of their own perceived sanity. The goal of the museum is to create a thorough understanding through empathy. This should result in an increased awareness of mental illness, challenging the audience’s own ideas of ‘madness’ and question if madness is as crazy as they think it is.

During the making of this project, we focussed on delivering social 'Paranoia'.
