“How It Hurts” is a print and performance project. The book, released by Publication Studio (Portland) in 2013, presents itself as a study guide for pain examinations. It is the result of extensive research into, and quotation from, the tests and questionnaires used to measure pain in various clinical settings. Performances from the book are organized as participatory reading events or more formally staged as test-prep seminars, following the conceit of the book. The first performance (pictured) happened late 2013 at the Short Run Small Press Festival in Seattle; performances in other US cities are scheduled throughout 2014.
