The Visible Human Project®, sponsored by the National Library of Medicine involves the creation of complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of the human body. It consists of magnetic resonance (MR) images, computed tomography (CT) images, and cryosection images of representative male and female cadavers. The male was sectioned at one-millimeter intervals, the female at one-third of a millimeter intervals.

The video installation project  « untitled (after the visible human project) », realized in 2002, is based exclusively on the cryosection images produced by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) for the Visible Human Project®. I employed these images to create two animated movies, one for the female and the other for the male.

I also digitally reconstructed a number of images that were missing in the original dataset of the NLM (due to the division of the cadavers into four blocks using a saw before serial sectioning) and added them to the sequence to create a complete journey (head to toe and back) through each of the bodies. The two videos are looped and intended to be shown next to one another, on two distinct screens.
