Invisible Illness: Spoon Theory

This project delves into the growing discourse around inclusivity & privilege in Singapore, especially in the current pandemic climate where the fog of isolation surrounds us.

The intention is to bring awareness to the isolation that people with invisible illness go through everyday in silence. By using spoons as a metaphor to present the difficulty and frustration of their lived experience. The posters hope to shine a light on people with invisible illness and drive social change for a more inclusive & empathetic society.

Spoon Theory is a term used within the disability community, where spoons are used as a gauge for their energy levels. 

Eg. Showering takes up 3 spoons, eating takes up 2 spoons…etc.
