When life falls apart, put the pieces back together

When life falls apart, put the pieces back together is an interactive jigsaw puzzle that explores the topic of mental health. While mental health issues are becoming more acceptable to discuss openly in society, our experiences are deeply personal and often difficult to share. This project aims to present the lived experience of depression using puzzle pieces, allowing participants to visually piece together their own experience, as well as add custom pieces to collaborate and share.
