(How can you make something out of I.V. tubes, bandages and pipe cleaners?)

He now considers himself normal and healthy; outliving friends, family, and early expectations.
New drug treatments and joint replacements have improved Ted's life and this in turn has changed his artistic direction, shifting from "Ted-centric" images to those that highlight other people's health problems. His "Scarred for Life" series chronicles events that suddenly changed people's lives. During an expansive narrated visual presentation, audiences come to understand how a lifetime of chronic illness impacts an artist's work.
