Diseases of Consciousness is a website, a small online encyclopaedia about the new ills that afflict modern man in the era of global capitalism. A small encyclopaedia and, in the group's own words, "on a human scale, a website designed as the equivalent to the painting on an easel in opposition to the predominant monumentality of the Web".
The work parodies the corporate concept of the health system, pharmaceutical companies and their involvement in isolating the individual and understanding his symptoms of rejection of the reality that surrounds him as an illness needing to be medicated.
