The Pain Project
In January 2018, I began a journaling process to try and understand the physical pain I feel daily. My pains are represented by an impression of the body using black paint. These paintings are how I am honoring my pain. One year and three journals later, I connected with more people wanting to talk about their pain than I could ever have imagined. It was an inspiring year.
This performance was a walking tour for the audience. They were instructed to walk along the fence line, where a copy of each print had been hung. I was in the distant background dancing each journal entry's day of pain. The performance was followed by a talk back.
