Bipolar man 3D is an artwork of Sven. Sven was confronted with two psychoses in his young life. He has learned to control his madness, by giving expression to it via art installations and performances. His work is an ode to the vulnerability and at the same time also to defensibility of the human mind.
Bipolar man is a self portrait of Sven, as a unique bipolar individual. He used to wrap himself with a bandage to prevent himself from falling apart (literally). The initially 2D drawing came alive through this 3D bipolar man of steel. The 3D bipolar sculpture in steel print also resulted in a drawing and a print (click here to see the result)
