This Is What It Feels Like, or Design as Therapy: Presenting Design as a Therapeutic Tool for Mental Illness is composed of selected chapters from the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders which provide information about each recognized anxiety disorder. By using the text of the manual as an artistic medium, this book aims to provide an authentic view of life with anxiety.
Created with only ink and tape, it offers a therapeutic process—take something that represents what holds you back, and make it your own. You're bound to find beauty (and catharsis) in it.
"Anxiety's like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you very far.”
