Can you find Worsham in the image? She is located in the lower right and looking sidewise at those present. Worsham is living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis also known as Lew Gehrig’s Disease and is only mobile through the use of a wheelchair. She “draws” using a sensor from a computer attached to her eyebrow, and moves her eyebrow in order to draw.
“I got a kick out of turning the tables in this piece. Sometimes I feel like that woman as if I am the only so called normal one in the bunch and all the people without disabilities are from another planet.” – Worsham
