Paint Your Pain (PYP)
Painting has been demonstrated to have a beneficial impact for people when representing their state of mind/body in a visual way, allowing them to produce an image that everybody can relate to.
Paint your Pain is a project that brings together art, engineering, and medicine to reflect on human pain.
Our project provides a better representation of pain and create a network of communication between members of the public. We ask the public to paint their pictorial representation of pain related to any illness directly or indirectly connected to the person. We are interested in analysing artworks collected by detecting differences in shapes, use of different colours, types of brush strokes, size of the drawing, etc. Each painting tells the story of different pains.
This list will be extended soon.
Currently waiting for the outcome of our recent fund. Please stay tuned..
