This (art)n collaboration with artist Penny Feuerstein depicts her transformation and rebirth as an ovarian cancer survivor. Thanks to scientific research and new drugs in the field, Feuerstein’s tumor was obliterated, allowing her to avoid the much more exhausting methods of treatment, chemotherapy and surgery, which she otherwise would have had to go through for a second time. Feuerstein’s now healthy CT scan is portrayed surrounded by her abstracted water paintings, emulating the cleansing water renewal she felt after going through these drug trials and eradicating her cancer. Water purifies and sustains life, just as she is left standing with a hopeful tomorrow ahead.
