(2013; sculpture/collage; fragmented radiographs; found footage; steel-framed; both sides glassed with sandblasted glass; measures 130 x 120 cm;)
X-ray images were fragmented and re-arranged in a specific pattern. This process enabled the re-contextualization of the medical-diagnostic material. Questions about the relationship between photographic and radiographic practices, analogies and contrasts in the context of history, physics, aesthetics, and application method accompanied the process of realisation. As a result, the form of this piece oscillates between plasticity and image, which influences its spatial presentation. It marks the beginning of the following projects based on x-rays combined with architecture, slabs and textile material.
I noticed that the material slowly develops a patina as the fragments change its color into pastel tones of purple, green, sepia and yellow, depending of the amount of sunlight the object is exposed to. The bottom images show details from november 2019.
