Migraine Register

2009 - ongoing

 

I wake up many mornings with a throbbing migraine. I take medication. Then I get back in bed with my laptop and distract myself until the pains subsides. My webcam has become my mirror and my migraine register. The webcam and Photoshop offer me a way to leave my body and to express what I can't articulate: how to make pain visible. The first iteration of this project is 100migraines.net
