Spoon Theory

Spoon Theory

26 October – 9 December 2023

‘Spoon Theory’ is an exhibition of spoons crafted to abstractly represent some of the emotions experienced by a person living with an invisible illness, in this case autism. Based on the concept of Spoon Theory created by Christine Miserandino, each spoon will be crafted from scratch and represent an emotion felt by a specific individual, the artist herself.

The aim of the exhibition is to bring awareness to invisible illnesses. It is hoped that it may help some people either through recognition or understanding and assist in the breakdown of associated stigmas.
