Phantom Pains is an exploration of the possibility that buildings have a consciousness; that they hold memories in their walls while they watch the passage of time. A monastery, now in ruins and gutted by fire, becomes the subject. It remembers its life as a functioning place, a place of prayer and contemplation. Images of the monks over the years are woven into the stone remains of the monastery; the ruins recall the tolling of the bells.
