Artist Statement:

What do we create in the space pain occupies?
Consider your body and the things that surround it … the movement of messages up and down your spine swaddled in sinew and fabric. At birth, we’re swaddled in cloth, which covers our bodies in death, and we live the space between surrounded by fabric. Similarly, our nervous system is everywhere, always firing and relaying messages from the tips of our feet to the tops of our heads, keeping us in motion and connected to each other.
Neural is a community of pieces that make up a body. Each is unique, sensual, complete yet falling apart.
Together they tell the story of the body, its
frayed nerves.

With each cut, a new synapse emerges,
a new way to transmit
the throbbing
the burning
the infinite
losses caused by living
with chronic pain.
