P.A.I.N. – Pleasure Acceptance Intimacy Noise – is a self-funded photo project about P.A.I.N. The project’s goal is to photo-document the diversity of P.A.I.N and the diversity of ways and means used to respond to pain. Every Human adopts and/or develops a specific behavioral approach towards P.A.I.N. Some use rituals and meditation to accept P.A.I.N. Some do not. For most Humans the sense of P.A.I.N. remains elusive.
Through photographic documentation we will create images of 18 Humans and their relation to P.A.I.N. Each one tells their own personal story by contributing to the stage design and creating their own little universe in order to share their interaction with, and experience of, P.A.I.N. The photographs will be accompanied by self-composed lines from each participant about their thoughts about, philosophy of, and relationship to P.A.I.N..
