About the Project
Depression Prevention was a 5 step program that I developed for a residency whilst in Umea, Sweden, 2008. Whilst there, I researched the illness of depression which plagues certain areas of Sweden (Umea being one of them) at certain times of the year when they do not get any sunlight. The effect of this is a huge vitamin D deficiency, which results in depression. I worked with psychologist Rolf Adolfsson at a hospital who informed me about several precautions to take to avoid depression as well as some cures. I developed a five step program whereby you could learn about the prevention and cures for depression. This was ‘performed’ on their open day for the urban concerns project amongst various other performative works.
