Laura Desimine: Abstracting the Continuum of Mental Health

Abstracting the Continuum of Mental Health

Laura Desimine

Abstracting the Continuum of Mental Health is a touchable, huggable, feelable installation encompassing the expansive, exploratory emotional spectrum of the artist’s bipolar emotions. The mental health continuum, represented in the abstract form of this circular quilt, has no beginning or end. It is important to embrace the continuum that is your mental health. There is a stigma around the neurodivergent brain. When one is “unhealthy,” it is often thought to be an inherent fault instead of something unique and ever changing. Through touch, these pieces intend to help the viewer embrace the fluctuations of one’s mental health and cyclical change of emotions over time.
