Blood, Cells and Neurons’ examines Post-Exertional Malaise or PEM as it is more familiarly called. It is the extreme exhaustion, pain, cognitive networks and deficits that present after exertion in M.E/chronic fatigue syndrome patients with an extremely slow return to baseline. The return could be as long as one day, weeks or months. It’s as if the blood cells become frigid and the cellular function is unable to process oxygen in the normal way.
The series intertwines the micro and the macro, the internal and external human landscapes. The mapped landscape revealed in the images acts as a vessel to transport the science in a certain time, creating a safe place for the viewer to absorb the information.
