This work is in response to living with chronic pain. As my spinal condition worsened and my daily options became diminished, I had to navigate my world with new restrictions. I needed to deal with multiple medications, wired instruments to control pain and the need for a constant supply of batteries to keep the machines working. With my activities restricted, I started to see myself confined to a narrower world. Filling the cage with my necessities became a way of visualizing how I was feeling.
