Anatomical Glass, 2019

These works considers the advance of medical representational technology and the questions it poses to subjective experience of the body. As the body is able to be seen and therefore known in ever greater detail, what impact does that have on how we think and feel about our own body? Do we identify with these representations as if they were part of us or do they distance us from subjectivity, appearing as a separate entity created and understood by specialists but not ourselves? Davy used the medium of stained glass due to the ambiguity of where the line between image and projection is drawn.

This work was made in collaboration with specialist in Cerebral Malaria, Dr Christopher Moxon, and was made with the support of the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Parasitology.
