San Francisco, California. Awake, again, at 3am. M. Cain draws how they feel. The compelling and raw line drawings illustrate Electrical Sensitivity (EHS): the sleeplessness, headaches, and ear ringing.
Idea for an animation:a graph of a year in the life of a man. It starts and continues slowly with the man getting 'pinged' with tiny holes through his body as by a soft breeze. As more and more holes blow through him the man becomes confused and dizzy. Then, through the holes, you begin to see the sky, or whatever is happening behind him. He does not fight this, is just too tired to care. Finally he calmly sits on the floor as the last holes completely disappear him. While the theme music is also putting You to sleep with it's creepy dissonance. M. Cain 2019

M. Cain says, “I wanted the drawings to show what EHS personally, physically, feels like. The ink line is like a thread you can pull through ideas that become inner informants to a deeper layer. And hopefully, intuitively, show people that positive changes are possible, by learning to imagine, with intent to create.”

This last drawing reaches for hope, a return to the Earths natural frequencies. Thank you M. Cain.
