Mental disorders grow with rapid numbers — The fact that scientific studies only work quantitative is problematic as they don`t show the current state in its multilayered dimension nor provide updated tools.

Based on the radical changes within individualization and health, and on my own research e.g in natural data of todays social media culture: my aim is to present signals of a heavily, with mental health influenced lifestyle. From openly mentioning former taboos like therapy sessions, towards self-ironic aesthetics where hardcore becomes softcore - grunge pastel and depression chic: „Sick Style“ is a decoded overview of new communication strategies. This trendguide will serve as a first glimpse into a new problematic yet aesthetically upand-coming lifestyle.
