The X - Ray Light Box.


The first X-ray light box. The digital mock up from the drawing board plus it's actual progress so far. Still very much a prototype but getting there slowly.
The idea is to juxtapose the clinical viewing of the body - the modern framing of anatomy that carries with it authority and appropriation (underlined, I would argue, with much fear) - with the nineteenth century view. That is  a curiosity  and a sense of wonder - an almost celebration of the mystery forever  inherent in human corporeality.
