Joris Kuipers

Written by Valentina on . Posted in art, installation


Joris Kuipers‘ installations are inspired by bodily cross-sections from MRI scans and CT scans:

“Joris Kuipers’ works find their origin in historic, scientific and/or anatomic sources ranging from the woodcuts by Andreas Vesalius to CT-scans, MRI-scans, autopsy images and the plastinations by Gunther von Hagens. As in medical practice, Joris dissects the body layer by layer. After this fragmentation, the body is rearranged in a non-rational manner, in order to reveal emotional significance.”

Fritz Kahn

Written by Andrea on . Posted in art, illustration


Dr. Fritz Kahn (1888–1968) was a Berlin based gynaecologist and popular science writer who visualized the structure and function of the human body in a very unique way.


“The biology of smelling a roast: pictorial representation of the processes that occur in a man’s head between the sensation of
smell and the ‘reflectory’ salivation.”


“The basic forms and functions of the bones and joints in man’s body are very similar to our own architectural and technological constructions.”


“Man is right-handed and right-speaking because he is left-brained. We speak, write and handle objects using our left side of the brain. The nerve fibers cross over in the spinal marrow of the neck. The right half of the brain is—relatively—lacking in centers and, so to speak, largely empty.”
