ARTSCIENCE spotted today on brick lane at 39 Degrees Lancaster University’s BA Fine Art Degree  Show 2011. Drawing (graphite) by Rachel Daniel: ‘my practice exists within the legacy of both anatmoy art and medical illustration but is made contemporary through a dependence on mechanically derived images of the body such as X-rays, CT and MRI scans. Within my work I try to balance the spectacle and visual allure of medical scans with how incomprehensible they are to the general public, focusing on the dichotomy of technophobia and technophilia which medical technologies instill. I attempt to rebuild a body image out of fragments into cohesive forms which reflect my interest in the theatrical side of anatomy and present the viewer with an opportunity to reassess their body image within the confines of the digital age.’
