Statement

Instead of regarding the human body as a machine-like component of the human entity or an object for public debate, I think of the body as a lived, subjective experience. By integrating unpredictability, intuition, and intimacy into carefully rendered medical drawings, I subvert medical illustration and use it as a trope; I address the perception and value of the human body in an increasingly technologically mediated world.
