Does drinking keep a relationship healthy – or split couples apart? Do you drink more, or less, than your partner? What if one person drinks and the other doesn’t? What can prairie voles teach us about drugs and relationships, and can portraits of people under the influence reveal subtle aspects of connection, strengthened or frayed – connections illuminated by analysis of behavior and structures in our brains?

Bryn is a Portland artist with a persistent interest in portraiture. Portraits show much more than what their subjects look like; they show the nature of the relationship between the sitter and the artist, the space between two people where identity and the self are formed. In this project, Bryn is exploring what happens to that space when one or both participants are impaired.
