In migraineland, Anita Chaudhuri documents her lived experience of migraine with aura, a complex neurological condition. Using the methodologies of photomontage and hand-colouring, the project offers an intimate insight into the world of an everyday hallucinator. By creating a topsy-turvy landscape of phosphorescent colours and improbable scenarios, migraineland seeks to enlighten visitors about the many other common symptoms beyond headache - from visual disturbances to food cravings, vertigo and anxiety. The Migraine Trust estimates that ten million people in the UK are living with the disorder, a third of them with aura. The hope is that the work will help not only migraineurs but their families, friends and loved ones to better understand the disorder.
