I have started writing realizing that my migraine project needs words as well as images. I am having trouble knowing where to begin. Writing for me is more painful (conceptually and emotionally) than making images. Specifics take on a greater importance. I leave the word document and return to sorting, organizing, and editing the 1500+ images from last 2.5 years. First self portrait I ‘officially’ took for this project appears to be September 16, 2009. At that point, however, it was not an art project, it was just another of my many attempts to record the frequency of my migraines. So as I struggle to write about the invisible, I return to this image that I made in November 2011 where visions of migraines collected from the Internet are imprinted on my body. Above is the reworked version.
