Transection of the Anatomical Planes

Rooted in the rich history of medicine in Italy, Transection of the Anatomical Planes is a marble dissecting table incised along the three anatomical planes: the coronal, the sagittal, and the transverse. The slab normally supporting a prone cadaver is instead a vacant void, a sunken cavity suggesting emptiness and loss. The piece references the tradition of ecorché models as well as contemporary modes of visualizing the body, such as the Visible Human Project.
