Abstract [en]

FITZCARRALDO

The story of insanity or craziness is as long as human existence, but it’s not until recent centuries we actually started to make it into a field of medicine. This field is called psychiatry.

Psychiatry is the only field within medicine that has the built-in capacity to make you a patient against your will.

The present system of categorising individuals into diagnoses and treatment, the science results together with history of insanity and use of physical constraint, makes the field of mental illness extremely fragile for the individual perception and value.

How could we predict, through the eyes of the individual, a physical space that can improve these individuals state of mind? And could the physical space contribute to reduce medication and constraints?

FITZCARRALDO

Historien om mental sjukdom och galenskap är lika lång som mänsklighetens historia, men det är inte förrän på senare år som vi har gett detta en plats inom medicin. Detta fält kallas psykiatri.

Psykiatrin är den enda del av sjukvården som kan göra dig till  patient mot din egen vilja.

Det nuvarande systemet av att kategorisera människor i diagnoser, behandling, vetenskapliga studier tillsammans med historien om galenskap och användandet av fysiska restriktioner, gör fältet psykiatri bräckligt. Kan individens egna vilja och värde, tillsammans med den egna tolkningen av världen, ges större utrymme i utformningen av dagens psykiatriska kliniker?
