MELANCHOLIA TABLEAU

Freud’s Fainting Couch
Hybridized 19th century lady’s fainting couch and Sigmund Freud’s study chair

Gray Matter
Etched velvet for Melancholia Tableau depicting three basic types of neurons affected by depression: motor, sensory and interneuron, as well as the molecular structures of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that affects mood, sleep and memory; also represented are antidepressants fluoxetine (Prozac); and desvenlafaxine (Pristiq)

Laden: Melancholia Glove
Victorian-style opera length glove of glass beads and crystals

Hankies
Knit, sewn, and crocheted handkerchiefs printed with molecular diagrams of antidepressants, serotonin, neurons, estrogen, and more; handmade wooden boxes

Exquisite Suffering
Headphones; audio recordings and sound compositions: Lullaby, Shame and Memory

Our depression patient reclines on a post-Freudian couch/therapy office chair upholstered with burned-out velvet, etched with organically patterned molecular diagrams of Prozac, neurons, synapses, and serotonin receptors.

Nearby a single glove is left behind, so heavily laden with dripping, tear-like beads that any wearer would be rendered motionless. Grayish handkerchiefs embroidered and printed with anti-depressant imagery are preserved in containers reminiscent both of tissue and specimen boxes.

Depression is a debilitating mood disorder and medical condition that persists over an extended time period, or occurs in episodes that interfere with normal life. Symptoms of the most common forms– Major Depression and Dysthymic Disorder– include changes in sleeping and eating patterns, difficulty thinking, feelings of guilt or worthlessness, fatigue, anxiety, changes in motor functioning, muscular pain, digestive problems, hopelessness and thoughts of death. In Dysthymic Disorder, symptoms may be less severe, but last longer than two years. Over 17 million Americans are diagnosed with depression annually.

Women are twice as likely than men to suffer from depression, and this disease is misdiagnosed 30-50% of the time. It is often concurrent with eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety disorders, also more prevalent in females. Despite this, the over-prescription of anti-depressant medications—which often have serious side-effects—is alarming. Females are 2 ½ times more likely than males to be taking antidepressants.
