Inspired by the body maps made by people with HIV/AIDS, I created this piece which makes connections between my body and my health issues (text printed on the photo of me) and my environment (text printed in the margins, around my body.) Not that I attribute everything to the environment—the "old lady wrinkles on my knees' are just that!
