Installation: The Immortal

This art installation is comprised of various life-support machines  connected to each other, circulating liquids and air in an imitation of a biological structure. The piece is intended to explore human dependence on modern electronics in medicine.

"Salted water acts as blood replacement: throughout the artificial circulatory system minerals are added and filtered out again, the blood gets oxygenated via contact with the oxygen cycle, an ECG device monitors the system's heartbeat.

As the fluid pumps around the room in a meditative pulse, the sound of mechanical breath and slow humming of motors resonates in the body through a comforting yet disquieting soundscape."
