Every Mind Is Different started in 2021, with the goal of creating awareness about mental health. It gathers references from many sources: Creative therapy such as grid stitching, medical art, neurodiversity and idealism concepts, mental health awareness and social responsibility blogs, but also pixel art, automatic drawing, the NFT current of collections, Pop Art and advertising.
It consists of thousands of digital artworks, interpreting brain scans with mental disorders, as a reminder that our knowledge about the human mind is still limited.
The collection points out that, even though there are similarities in the way the human brain is affected by a specific mental illness, our minds are very different, which makes the illness unique for each individual. The background color is also different to suggest the multitude of environments that our minds process. Even though we can scan the brain in high resolution using current technology, the image of the mind is still pixelated, missing fine detail. Many treatments using medication are based on a trial-and-error process, which tries to alter the perception of reality for an ill mind. The color palette used in these drawings is inspired by the PET scan colors which illustrate the activity of the brain.

Panic Disorder 8-13, Kusama Special Edition.
The Kusama reference comes from her late career. When her art started to become manufactured, as a product. Her polka dots are not restricted to paint anymore, they become printed. The same concept of infinity spreads very well in many different media. Everything becomes mass produced. It might be true that Warhol has copied her ideas, but now the table has turned. Kusama factory!
"I fight pain, anxiety, and fear every day, and the only method I have found that relieved my illness is to keep creating art. I followed the thread of art and somehow discovered a path that would allow me to live." - Yayoi Kusama
Kusama calls her work “art-medicine”—for both herself and the rest of us. “I wanted to start a revolution, using art to build the sort of society I myself envisioned.” - NYmag.com
