And Then I Woke


Special Artistic Merit

Bone structure and the human body is important to me because of my Klippel Trenaunay, Preiser Disease, and Carpel Tunnel. My future is uncertain because I don’t know what to expect with regards to my ability to use my wrists and legs. Sometimes I feel as if my body is quite separate from my mind, which is somewhat discomforting, but also beautiful in a metaphysical sense.
