DSM 1952 & 2013

This piece features two scrolls of paper on which are listed the terms for psychiatric diagnosis from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of American Psychiatry - the definitive first and its most recent update.

 

The increase in the number of terms is starkly illustrated by the scroll lengths, and describes graphically the minute pathology of human behaviours over the past 60 years
