Lupus is a chronic disease. It is hard to diagnose. It is difficult to treat. It is impossible to cure. Lupies "don't look like we're sick." For this piece I will take pixels from photos of Lupies and attach them to aluminum in the shape of a butterfly. The pixels become the cells of the butterfly's wings. The Butterfly is a Lupus symbol because most of us get a butterfly shaped rash on our cheeks and across our nose. A close look at the cells will reveal rashes, dry eyes, swollen joints, chemo IVs, hospital gowns and strong smiles.
