Image versus Mental Illness

December 16, 2014

We are told what to see, how to see it and when to see it. At the same time, we know too well whether the surrounding reality looks like what the society taught us to see. Who and what determines the criteria of when we see “right” and when we see “the right thing”? What if our look is different and we can see the world in a way that diverges from established criteria? What if our visual representation of that world is different as well? What is right, normal and different in case of the visual perception of reality?
