Mythos Schmerz / Visualisierungs-System

Mythos Schmerz
Mythos Schmerz

"A danger well-known is a danger less agonizing. Based on this quote i tried to make different types of pain, as well as their course through the body, more comprehensible for everbody."
I was aiming on approaching the complex & socially explosive topic of chronic pain with the tools of a graphic designer. In collaboration with pain therapists, i developed 2 experimental systems of visualisation to make people curious and to encourage a discussion.

"mystic pain – from perception to science" consists of 7 topics with 14 posters, 7 info-posters and a reseach book with essays, interviews and methods of visualisation.
