Body and CTA

Elizabeth Jameson is an artist specializing in the intersection of art and science.  As a person living with Multiple Sclerosis, she uses neurotechnology to transform her brain scans into a vibrant, unique form of portraiture that celebrates the imperfect body and brain. Jameson collaborates with scientists, health care providers, and those living with illness to spark conversations and deepen the complex narrative of disability and disease.

She now focuses on how art and design can assist in honoring the human experience of illness, specifically in clinical spaces such as the waiting room. Ms. Jameson’s most recent project, #FacingMS, uses art, storytelling and technology to access the untapped potential of time spent in waiting rooms. Jameson’s work is shown internationally at major universities, hospitals, and neuroscience centers throughout the world.
