Depression is a modern-day disease and mental illness that is widespread in overpopulated metropolises. An extensive number of people suffer from it in silence as there is shame or a fear of being judged or labelled. A Fine Line does not seek to cure depression, rather it hopes to raise awareness in a straightforward way.
A Fine Line is a light that speaks to people who are overwhelmed by depression. Its message relies on strong symbolism, and it doesn’t hold back while addressing the sensitive topic of suicide: the light switch is activated by a rope that resembles a noose. When the light is switched off and there is darkness, the noose is present. However, when the noose is detached (via magnetic clips), the light is switched on. Whether it’s tied up or freed, you have complete control over the light – and life.
