Last weekend I went to a punk show in Downtown San Jose. People started thrashing around forming a mosh pit of sorts (as they do at these things), and in my attempt to move out of the way I got thrown back and hit my head on the concrete. I lost consciousness and wound up in the hospital. All in all, I am lucky to walk away with a simple concussion, some mild side effects, and a good story.
I don't remember much of what happened, but I wanted to record the images and feelings I could remember after hitting my head. I mean, how often do you get an opportunity like this? These are the results.
As I was working on these I found that my head ache was coming back, I was getting dizzy, and an overall feeling of panic was setting in. It was fascinating, and I'm glad I thought to record these feelings.
