Madlove: A Designer Asylum 

3.00 – 4.00pm 1st August

An artists talk by the vacuum cleaner, in collaboration with Hannah Hull

Is it possible to go mad in a positive way? How would you create a safe place in which to do so? If you designed your own asylum, what would it look like?

Madlove is a new project by artist and activist the vacuum cleaner based on his personal experience of mental health hospitals, and his desire to find a positive space to experience mental distress… and enlightenment. In this informal artist talk he will present the outcomes of the first year of research and development. From the suggestions for a utopia asylum collected through extensive workshops, to the realisation of the beta version of Madlove this spring, through to plans for the future of the project.
