Hybrid Bodies

A very interesting project, I worked as a Still Photo Stereographer for University of Ottawa professor Catherine Richards on her contribution to the Hybrid Bodies project, a collaboration between transplant surgeons in Toronto and international exhibiting artists to explore the non-scientific – yet more human – side of transplant surgery.


From the website:

While significant research has been conducted in transplantation using the bio-medical model, few researchers have explicitly connected organ recipients’ experiences and cultural views about transplantation to the notion of embodiment. The aim of this project is to further explore the complexity of organ transplantation in a novel way which makes it accessible to the public by providing context to discuss and explore these ideas. We hope the  artworks will provide a tangible focus for discussions.
