Psychotic Spaces: Condo Commercials

Psychosis can bluntly be defined as a condition of losing touch with reality.

If we look at new condo commercials closely, they present truly psychotic spaces, spaces with no connection with reality.

One recent example is Redrow Condo commercial from London (below). The commercial was pulled after widespread criticism (Telegraph).

Another example is Quasar Istanbul commercial. We see everything in the promotional film, but the houses themselves. The thriller/horror movie trailer and a long one. The real deal starts after 00:52.

The two commercials show us examples of psychotic spaces framed in such commercials: spaces away from reality, wrapped with superpowers and unreal scenes.

Both make people feel that they are walking in delusions of a person…

Maybe it is time to come back to reality.
