Darian Goldin Stahl’s work concerns our encounters with medicine and imaging technologies. She is interested in how the lived, dimensional body is flattened in medical scans, and the effect these surreal photographs have on the patient’s conception of self. This installation also reveals the networks of humans, animals, and materials that undergird scientific innovation. In circular compositions, viewers are able to train an eye onto the layers of the bodily research in a merging of macro- and microscopic viewpoints.
