As a teenager I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a surgeon. I never had the grades to pursue that career, but I loved paging through his old surgical manuals. I have always marvelled over the ability surgeons have to take the knowledge gleaned from those immaculate illustrations and apply it to real world operations, which look nothing like the images in those books. I decided to play with this concept and deliberately reverse it for my crash series. Cars and airplanes are made with precise machinery; I am trying to reverse engineer those perfect structures to better resemble the chaos that our soft, wet bodies actually look like once they are opened and we are allowed to peek inside.
