TROIS FOIS RIEN (Cycle Trois Fois Rien)
I fell 3 meters onto concrete, after a wedding party on a Greek island. Four surgeries, a bunch of internal and external hardware later, I transformed this event into something else.
They asked me to quantify pain. It is quite impossible to do. So I turned to what could be quantified, making list after list of amounts of radiation, of medicine, of fractures, of exams, of foreign bodies at a given time ... using my medical file to get that information. Rationalizing the most sensible experience. Dizzying numbers representing this tiny little misstep.
Making it a book of drawings, photos, and photocopies, all representing the patient. Giving all the key elements of the story. Once again, detective work.
