Artist Ellie Harrison was an extreme data collector, from documenting her every meal to her bodily functions; it was an obsession that was the core of her artistic practice for over 5 years. When she realised how intense this introspective and almost compulsive behaviour had become she decided she must quit. She turned to Sally O’Reilly who became the therapist who implemented the treatment ominously known as Hysterical-Historical Praxis Therapy. This book examines the implementation of this therapy and its effect on the artist.
