MARIE LYNN SPECKERT
Scalptomorpha shows an excerpt of an idea as part of my PhD, which should connect to the human body. An object with its own organism that fits into a closed structure, such as the human body. This object takes data from internal body rhythms, which it uses and returns: data processing compared to a digestive system.
In this research project I will utilize a portable art tool that the visitor “wears” during an exhibition in order to receive notable feedback from his/her internal body signals. It might be considered a parasite or an extension of a body part or organ, even as a tool of medical aid with the goal of manipulating the ‘organism’ (the participant’s body).
My project is a synthesis between art, music and medicine, which unfolds into a large field. In theory, I focused my research on the definition and conception of anatomy. I examine the human body in its structure and order, study it as a figure, sculpture and space, which functions as a habitat.
