Idiopathy denotes a disease which arises spontaneously with its origin unknown. This project investigates ‘Idiopathic peripheral neuropathy’ and other forms of pain using a degree of abstraction to create images that attempts to visually represent the various sensations experienced when suffering these ailments. Dr Elliot Krane, a Pediatric anesthesiologist, describes pain as a disease.
The experimental image making uses a process consisting of long exposed photography, screen prints, etching, photograms, marbling and augmented reality [AR done in collaboration with Leon Barker PhD] to visually represent nerve sensations when affected by the above ailment. Examples of nerve sensation caused by Idiopathic neuropathy pain includes, numbness, burning, pins and needles, stabbing, radiation, electric shock, and more.
