80mg

Website, original soundtrack, projection  |  2010

Pages resembling hospital monitors structure this multi-leveled game created over the course of several months during which the artist increased the dosage of his prescribed antidepressant in increments of 20mgs. Levels ranging from “0mg” to “80mg” all display a central x-ray taken of various parts of the artist’s own body superimposed and surrounded with imagery and information relating to objects and experiences during the timespan each dosage was taken. Ending with only a link to the beginning of the process, the game is intended to mirror the cyclical nature of self-medication.
