Sentree

When my mother had a seizure in a public place, I needed to shelter her from onlookers and I needed a voice to inform them of the situation. I chose to use a tree which connotes strength and shelter. The tree then became a backpack for a child to carry. Addressing both shelter and giving voice, a blanket is pulled out from the backpack’s front pocket. The child places the blanket over an adult when a seizure occurs. A brief message, don’t worry it’s only epilepsy, is embroidered on the blanket, informing concerned onlookers that this event is somewhat normal.
