Fractured is an autobiographical project that consists of illustrations put into a narrative format, to record personal struggles in life involving suicidal ideation.
Harbouring and expressing suicidal thoughts is often seen as taboo and referred to as a weakness, even if the thoughts are fleeting. Expressing these thoughts and seeking help are the most commonly recommended and effective way in easing such thoughts, but the Asian mindset of keeping ones’ problems to oneself is an obstacle for such treatment, and it is detrimental to those inflicted especially if these thoughts start from young.
This project aims to increase the visibility and sympathy for people in similar situations as I, and to offer ways to cope with such thoughts.
