Cindy Stelmackowich believes that visual images are needed to pass on knowledge in science and medicine. In each of her projects she applies techniques used in medical dissection: cutting, splicing, isolating and preserving individual organs and body parts. Inspired by vintage microscopic slides and anatomical charts, SLICED is made up of images of the human eye taken from a 1920s student anatomy textbook. The images are divided into eight sections and displayed in sets of test tubes, each set representing one stage in the dissection process. Written by Sarah Patterson, Public Art Program, City of Ottawa.
