The puzzle pieces, which are a symbolic representation of a person’s constituent elements, are thrown together in a confusing manner, and the overall composition is vaguely reminiscent of a human face.

A sense of chaos arises from the disorderly arrangement of puzzle pieces, intended to evoke the mnemonic, emotional, and behavioral challenges faced by individuals with dementia.

The only recognizable element is an eye, symbolizing that the person at times is still present.

In the tangle of restlessness, aggression and bewilderment that a person with dementia experiences, there is an awareness and hope that, after all, some part of what that individual was is still present somewhere and in some form.
