beta heroes

"The body is a mechanical object made up of joints, pipes and pumps"

Herman Boerhaave is a botanist, humanist and physician from the 18th century.
He induced a modernisation of medical education. As a professor he
used to take students to the hospital to let them analyse diseases
of sick people, the relation of symptom and lesion. He must have had
a cercain esteem to learn from the language of the body.

In the exhibition the viewer shall be encouraged to examine, the people
shall feel the urge to analyse a certain functioning of an organism.

Therefore I plan to build a translucid ball with an air pump and source of light inside.

a breathing sculpture
