Chest 56; Windy night

‘Twas a dark and stormy night.

The chest X-ray was taken from a teaching file of a young person with bronchiectasis. It caused severe respiratory distress from which he died. The file did not state the cause but it was probably post infective though it could have been cystic fibrosis. I was meditating on the concept of breath as wind and have created an image in which the X-ray becomes a sail tossed on a stormy sea. The pattern on the sail reminds me of the patterns on Chinese cotton damask fabric.
