topographies of pain

 

Mapping the geography of pain through markings on the body, Topographies of Pain grapples with
the ethical implications of the act of looking and what it means to bear witness to the pain of others.
At once both intimate and aggressive, this relationship is dependent on the willingness of both
participants to see and be seen by the other. The images work to use this shared vulnerability as a
point of connection, collapsing the distinction between self and other where the pain of revealing
and the pain of looking at that which is revealed converge.
