Phrenology

Through my use of phrenology, a once respected but now rejected scientific theory, I focus on the constant attempts being made to categorize, standardize and simplify the human psyche.

The prosject being proposed here will retain this subject-matter, but as a result of further research it will include also other theories, like antropometry, physiognomy, theories of Lavater, Kretschmer, Lamblosio etc. (indicated on p.2-12). The presentation will take the form of a multimedia installation (see p.13-14 as indications) where the various theories are visually presented in the form of instruments, charts, sculptures, video etc. An important element will be active participation of the audience, forcing them to reflect on the impact of formal theoritisation on present day-life.
