"Named after the child god of recovery in Greek mythology, the work brings medical imaging into blue skies and meditative ripple movement. A moving image of medicine, arts, magic, and healing states a connection between the body's anatomy and stories that survive through the centuries, between mortality and the divine. It belongs to a wider body of medical imaging animation works, but each stands individually. The work deals with ruptures in common dualities."
