Do you remember ? Do you remember when the therapies started ?
The sentence “Do you remember ?” is made up of 130 needles, stucked on a big image of myself with a panel in my hands and on which the sentence have been created. That is the exact number of injections (Rebif®) I have had my first year into the Multiple Sclerosis world between from the 17th of May 2010 to the 17th of May 2011, when my therapy was Rebif (Interferon beta-1a). The image in background is overlapped with a series of stylised images of the human body, front and back, with the date and the spot “x”, where that day the injection has been made. No overlapping “body image” are present the days when I have not done any injection.
Each small square, where the image is divided, rappresent a single day and are in the image in chronological order starting from the top left.
The sentence expressed should be a warning to remember me on the past, when all started. And the sentence is written with the exact number of needles I used that first year. Sometimes we forget the past but we are also the result of a past we do not have to forget.
