Silvia Russell. Mural at the GGZ Psychiatrische Institution in Bennebroek, 2011.

Description:
A mural that was created for the new building of GGZ Psychiatrische Institution in Bennebroek. After intensive workshops with the patients of the psychiatric institute, I strived to create an environment in which the patients would feel at ease and safe. Through the workshop I was able to understand their feelings of safety, and translated them through making a black and white outline mural that emphasized calm and and soothing shapes and was absent of colors to avoid rash reactions.

Medium:
Mixed Media
