Obsession at the Asylum, 2019
Obsession at the Asylum brings together the development of Obsession for Perfection and research on the West Ridings Pauper Lunatic Asylum. Aiming to intrigue and educate the local audience of Wakefield’s important history, the research consists of a condensed overview of the West Ridings Pauper Lunatic Asylum, also later known as Stanley Royd Hospital, which was one of the first mental health institutions to offer “moral care” for the “insane poor” in the 1800s.
