Contemporary Design

One by Roosa Muukkonen

This work was a means to make sense of my own lived experience with a dissociative disorder. Along the way I found out that wholes are not necessarily ones, and that more important than unified fronts are the dialogues in-betweens. Sense of connection creates a sense of common ground, a safe space for change and growth.

The end result is “one” sculpture made of numerous separate parts, coming together to form a whole, held together by their connect.

What is a whole but a sum of its parts? What is one but a collection of many?
