Notebook, size A6
Absolutely handmade, made from scratch by myself
160 pages aged with coffee
Handmade embroidery

April is National Autism Awareness Month. That’s why I’ve decided to create a special notebook in order to make this topic more visible. The embroidery is a reference to a book of Naoki Higashida “The reason I jump”, in which he tells about all the struggles he has to face every day of his life. Even though he reveals different sides of autism, Naoki stigmatizes himself and his particularity.

During this month I’ve learnt about neurodiversity and after having understood the importance of this concept I realized that I have to do something to focus the attention to it.

This embroidery is a try to express how autistic people might feel. Being a (I guess) neurotypical I can’t speak for them, but after I’ve read the book of Naoki I simply got this image in my head. And the word “autism“ is embroidered in this almost invisible way only because autistic people, especially in Russia where I live, are invisible and most of the time left fighting with the reality on their own.
