Seeing three of everything can be disorienting. That's what happened to Denver artist Sarah Richter in 2009. "One day I woke up, and I saw the world totally differently," Richter says. "It was very painful and frightening. But it was really beautiful too."
Doctors diagnosed Richter with multiple sclerosis. Since then, she has used her art to explore how MS affects her body. She recreates what she calls the "invisible symptoms" in her latest project"Sensory Paradox: An Artist's Experience with Multiple Sclerosis." It's on display through March 3 at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. Richter spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
Note: The exhibition is closed from Dec. 28 through Jan. 1.
