The Disease Cycle is an evolution of my ongoing EDITION/15 series of “time logs,” which deal with abstractions of time and the accrual of lived experience. Just as life grows from the smallest points of origin, so disease may build from the smallest variation, flaw or intervention. How these things play out over time is beautiful, terrible, and exponential in its process.
