The research project ‘Stitch_My/Your_ Brain’ is a critical reflection about anatomical imagemaking using contemporary printing techniques. Throughout the ages the reproduction of scientific medical knowledge mirrors the human self image and our relation to the body. ‘Stitch_My_Brain’ continues the combined history of printing and anatomy with series of art prints originating in Brain Lab situations.
It is supported by a grant of Stokroos Foundation.
Stitch_Your_Brain is the part of the project that is open to public participation, showing hand-stitched reflections of the brain on the project’s website.
Monika Auch is a visual artist and an M.D.
