    BECAUSE OUR MINDS MATTER...

  • We support imaginative investigations into the physics of thought in the field of art, science, and empathy for better mental wellness

    HOW WELL DO WE KNOW OUR THOUGHTS?

    It is estimated that we think 6200 thoughts a day.   Our thoughts can lift us up, motivate us, move us, but they can also bring us down...

     

     

    We know intuitively that our thoughts have a major impact on our mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being. Yet, how well do we really know our thoughts? How is it possible that a thought can harm the vessel that brings it forth? Why do thoughts harm us on such a massive scale?

     

    Founded on April 1st 2020, born from the Roomforthoughts practice, The Roomforthoughts Foundation is an art project in itself, supporting this endeavor, helping to build artistic research-based projects that give creative expression to an array of thought.  From suicidal thought, depressive thought, thoughts of self-harm, or the unique phenomena of psychotic thought. To neurodiverse thought, constructive thought, supportive thought, and confident thought.

     

    We support collaborations with lived experiencers who help us 'try on' such thoughts in order to better recognize them in ourselves and to generally help us to have a better understanding and better conversations about thoughts that affect our well-being. Our long-term aim is to begin an artistic Lexicon and Taxonomy of thought to be used by future generations for self-wellness.

  • WE PROUDLY SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING

    THOUGHT PROJECTS:

    THE ANOIKSIS EXPERIMENT

    FROM PSYCHOSIS TO ANOIKSIS - LABYRINTH PSYCHOTICA-II

    What is it like to be in psychosis? How to give expression to the subjective experiences of psychosis, otherwise known as a 'thought disorder'? In consortium with Stichting Doen and Roomforthoughts, The Roomforthoughts Foundation contributes to the development of a scalable tool, a new version of Labyrinth Psychotica's psychosis simulation that helps to better understand the subjective experiences of psychosis as an altered experience of sense-perception, thought, and consciousness.

     

    The Anoiksis Experiment aims to help professionals, friends & family, and society at large to be curious about experiences of psychosis, to support early recognition and even prevention. To help professionals to understand and de-escalate potential incidents and have an overall effect on preventable costs to society.

    HEAVENLY JOY, DEADLY SORROW

    ON SUICIDAL THOUGHTS AND AUTISM

    How to give expression to the complexity of suicidal ideation? In consortium with The JAEC Foundation and Roomforthoughts, The Roomforthoughts Foundation is working towards the support of a video installation by Eva on the topic of suicidal ideation and autism in a New York state of mind.

     

    Heavenly Joy, Deadly Sorrow aims to help people better understand and be curious about suicidal ideations in general, and in particular in a neurodiverse mind.
