Japanese hand bound
This work stems from a single photograph of a surgery scar. Physical damage is applied directly on the print and the process of which is documented. This project seeks to explore the graphical reinterpretation of pain on a photo of a scar that ceases to hurt. The gradual destruction of the print defies the chronological order in which a scar heals.
