ReThink Recovery is a 20-piece visual art exhibition that chronicles in real-time the guideposts I created along my journey of recovery from a concussion. According to medicine, I continue to live in-between the spaces of diagnosis and cure, still waiting to be "recovered". Through evolving interactive components, visitors are invited to witness, feel and experience recovery as a multi-faceted evolving process, rather than as a static end goal.
