In this unique sculptural bookwork, I write about the history of migraine, the latest neurological thinking about its causes, and the current medical thinking about diagnosis and treatment, using the typography of a real place that is quiet and peaceful. The pattern of the text is reminiscent of the surface of the brain, the source of migraines. The bed is the place that migraine sufferers wish to be when they are in pain.
