Some of the textual compositions constructed by Ajaykumar as elements for iPak,
were evolved from two installations he has made â labyrinth, and a play
on words - which were commissioned by Mental Health Media for its 2007
touring exhibition, Testimony.
Testimony in part serves to promote awareness of a major and vital archive, available online and at the British Library, London, of the oral histories, the testimonies, of those who have spent much of their lives in mental institutions in the UK. The aim is to increase understanding and challenge negative attitudes towards those who use mental health services.
These testimonies and other information can be accessed at: www.insidestories.org.
Ajaykumar wishes to thank Mental Health Media for its generous support of this work and his work in general.
