"Syndrome of the precative patient", by Mayra Sánchez

Syndrome of the precative patient: design of a therapeutic device for the treatment of the precative is the Final project by Mayra Sánchez, on Degree in Design, tutored by Octavi Rofes.


Precative: a combination of precarious and creative.

Thanks to precative practices in creative circles (academia, public institutions, the private sector, freelance work), it is only to be expected that signs of the Syndrome are frequently seen. Patients presenting symptoms must have an active attitude towards the problem, and the only way to generate this is to create a conscious pause in their surroundings. This project explores the limits of modern-day precariousness within creative industries, whatever it may be, and how its impact on society has been one of the causes of the growing number of cases or outbreaks of depression and worry in this so-called “age of anxiety.”
