Psychic Capital is a video collaboration between artist Jessica MacCormack and musician/sound artist Rae Spoon.

This project combines experimental animation and sound to explore how identity development is informed (and sometimes controlled) by psychiatry's relationship with capitalism and it's broader political objectives.

The video focuses on three themes, the history of psychiatry and its relationship to capitalism/consumerism in North America, the MKULTRA experiments in Montreal during the Cold War, and how the self-help movement depoliticized leftist movements after 1960's.
