With this cake I wanted to represent the theme of depression, illness from which I suffered for years.
The word depression in several languages forms a spiral, where in the center lies a helpless body, emptied, deprived of its colors, its vitality, with a vacuum glance, with no emotion. A deep black hole that starts from the chest and slowly, slowly expands making the body an empty container.
Photos full of past colors and emotions, fade just by touching them, leaving a further vacuum.
We need to change the culture of this topic and make it ok to speak about mental health and suicide.
As a member of United Nations of Sugar Art I choose to stand against the Stigma that surrounds mental Illness and encourage conversations about Mental Health.
