Depression rya was made in early 2018, when Laura Jantunen was depressed and exhausted. The rya is made with miscellaneous yarns carefully punctured into linen fabric. The color yellow was chosen as the base of the rya because yellow is the best color.
The Rya was supposed to be a counterpane to a bed. But due to ever changing circumstances it has found its way to decorate WASTED performance. It has also ended up to the wall of Finish National museum Ateneum during Urbanapa-festival.

As the name states this long and flower patterned rya was the first ever rya created by Laura Nen in 2018.
