Capacity and Process reveal the body’s pulmonary and alimentary systems. The organs are deliberately isolated and represented using transparent scientific laboratory glass to emphasise the transitory and ethereal nature of life, making physical and conceptual connections between the processes of oxygen becoming breath and food becoming energy. Pleasure/Pain was made in collaboration with Professor Morten L Kringelbach of Oxford University. Using state of the art brain scanning data from Diffusion and functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging they three dimensionally mapped the active overlapping cerebral pathways and volumes of both pleasure and pain onto the respective organs.

About the Artist
The dialogue between the empirical and the theoretical informs Annie Cattrell’s approach to making art. The artist employs a range of research and material strategies in order to make visible, in three dimensions, the sites where subtle yet significant changes and transformations continuously happen inside the human body and brain.
