Case Study
Gmitter Scholarship Exhibition
Exhibition held at the Bruce Gallery in Edinboro University, 2012 "A Case Study tends to reduce the patient to their sickness. Any medical journal will supply the symptoms, but never the name of the person as if that were irrelevant. I had been doing the same thing to myself; I even found it fascinating some days just how far I had fallen. In my eyes, I was not human, only a symptom of being human. This exhibit has been many years in the making and quite literally blood, sweat, and many tears. I truly was a case study. The images and text are insight into my disorder, but not me as a person. I am vastly different now, in recovery, than I had been when these documents were recorded. People may wonder why I am so open with all this very personal material. I am so different now that it’s as if I am talking about a distant relative of mine. I would encourage the viewers to consider this as a Case Study; Peer into this nameless person’s life and witness the horrible wonders that the mind is capable of. I was that person and am that person, but today in this exhibit I am just a case to be studied."
