About this work


"Pain memory is a book exporing the experience of living with medically unexplained pain. The original images were pencil drawn at night with the least dominant hand in an attempt to document and map the experience of pain. The text ... reflects various researches on chronic pain, from the language of pain to medically unexplained conditions and medications used for chronic pain"--Artist's website, viewed October 1, 2019.
