Megan Hildebrandt: Counting Radiation

Event Type: Exhibition
Facility: 
Presented By: USF Institute for Research in Art
Description: 
Megan Hildebrandt: Counting Radiation showcases 19 large-scale, ink and graphite on paper drawings by Hildebrandt that explore her experience battling cancer. Using tally marks, Hildebrandt 
creates a visual meditation on the meaning of time for cancer patients as they endure the seemingly endless waiting required by chemotherapy, CT scans and remission, and adapt to a life redefined by 
numbers (weight loss or gain, blood pressure, treatment hours, radiation exposure).

"I use tally marks to evoke time and memory as landscape," Hildebrandt says. "To repeat a tally mark is to move a step further toward taming my history and future. I am tallying my past and future, 
drawing a desert that shifts perspectives, a landscape that rolls, tumbles, and caves in."
