My photobook, Notes From My Therapist, is about the three years spent in therapy. The book came out of both my apprehensions about therapy, and need for therapy. In a recent exhibition of the work the book was installed inside of a waiting room. The waiting room was close to full-scale installed recreation of my therapist's waiting room. Inside of the waiting room the only reading material was my book, Notes From My Therapist and related writing. Jehra Patrick says it well in the press release for the show, “Carrie Thompson presents her artist book, Notes from My Therapist, editioned as casual reading material for passing time within her near-full-scale installed recreation of the waiting room for her therapist’s office. The book makes public the private act of participating in therapy. The full installation magnifies the moment of empathy, inviting audiences to take part in the anxiety of the anteroom while offering an intimate look into the vulnerabilities of the artist’s life and family.”
