Confessions of a Recovering Data Collector

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 Oโ€™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.
