An informal, global interview written for renown British-Indian artist, Prem Singh of New Delhi, India, for his 2008 gala opening.

A series of Bitstrips published on FB as a campaign to increase the awareness of people throughout the world who suffer from chemical sensitivities (toxic injury aka Toxic encephalopathy, a neurologic disorder caused by exposure to neurotoxic organic solvents such as toluene, following exposure to heavy metals such as manganese; or exposure to extreme concentrations of any natural toxin such as cyanotoxins found in shellfish or freshwater cyanobacteria crusts.*

∅  2nd year of the CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY campaign, ‘Unspecified”. Why “unspecified”? The western medical community, with a few exceptions, are confused as to what chemicals/chemical cocktails cause the symptoms that are actually attributed to prospective organ diseases/failures. Sufferers remain improperly diagnosed as a consequence.

* The 1999 consensus statement recommends that MCS be diagnosed according to six standardized criteria:

  1. Symptoms are reproducible with repeated (chemical) exposures
  2. The condition has persisted for a significant period of time
  3. Low levels of exposure (lower than previously or commonly tolerated) result in manifestations of the syndrome (i.e. increased sensitivity)
  4. The symptoms improve or resolve completely when the triggering chemicals are removed
  5. Responses often occur to multiple chemically unrelated substances
  6. Symptoms involve multiple-organ symptoms (runny nose, itchy eyes, headache, scratchy throat, ear ache, scalp pain, mental confusion or sleepiness, palpitations of the heart, upset stomach, nausea and/or diarrhea, abdominal cramping, aching joints).
