Artist Ted Meyer talks to friend Brian Knappmiller about his Scar Art art, a series of paintings and prints documenting people's scars, exploring the meaning, and even beauty, within the disfigurement. Meyer knows something about pain and scars. He suffers from Gaucher disease, an enzyme disorder that can cause easy bruising, bleeding and bone pain.
