Artist Statement: If we understood our mind as the most familiar yet complicated part of us, maybe we would do more thinking? “Hmm” (Health, Media, Madness and the Movement) is a podcast created to challenge the ideology of mental illness through an activist engagement in knowledge production. This episode looks at the trope and the truth behind the association of creativity and madness. Speaking with the public and asking three professionals (Jenna Reid, instructor of DST 500, Jeremiah Bach, Mad Activist, and Eliza Chandler, Artistic Director of Tangled Art + Disability) how art can make a difference.
