To Include Survivors from Near and Far, Names of ALL registered Arachnoiditis Survivors, including those registered for the Map of the Survivors, were inserted into prescription bottles and suspended throughout the exhibit at assorted heights to simultaneously illustrate the limitations placed upon us by the medical injury, the freedom/impairment dichotomy that comes with prescription medication for pain management, and OUR DETERMINATION TO COME TOGETHER ANYWAY.
