"Shadows and Illuminations" explores how non-normative mental events and behavior, including auditory and visual hallucinations, can be understood or interpreted in multiple ways outside the confines of western psychiatric diagnostics. "Memory of My Face" illustrates how the residues of colonialism and the pervasive influence of globalization affect the subjective experience of mental illness.
