Existing structures, such as Western medicine or far eastern traditional medicine, already convey individual body divisions and healing methods. Thus, there are several different system theories that define the body (as a construction) differently and relate it to science and the environment. Many scientifically proven parallels, e.g. Western and Far Eastern traditional medicine already exist and are developing into important, scientifically relevant healing methods.
My doctoral thesis deals with the arrangement of anatomical structures and is based on various concepts that convey different system theories of the body.
Among other things, I am interested in the physical spaces that are contained in the body and that are presented poorly or not at all in many textbooks. With the principle that the body consists of spaces, a new, architectural understanding of anatomy and medicine emerges.
The system is an organism that can be found in any kind of structure - in social organisms, living space, habitats, spaces that can be captured macroscopically and microscopically. These spaces have connections with each other, which can be witnessed by their materiality.
I would like to go one step further "under the skin" and deal with Far Eastern medicine. How do I get signals underneath the skin with my project? Is it possible to reach the fascial network to produce sound?
One idea is to design acupuncture needles that respond with sound to movement, rotation, and touch.
The human body should thus be used as an instrumental surface and the needles used as sound generators. In addition to installation projects, the aim is to develop a presentation area for live concerts and performances that reflect my concept and ideas.
