My research looks at the role that art production has on artists undergoing illness and body trauma and how art production at this precipice may contribute to reorientation after sizeable shifts in understanding. This includes research on embodied identities and the process of reclaiming disoriented bodies by examining subjects who address trauma and illness through art-making.

Keywords: identity; illness/disabilities; visual arts
