The anatomical can seem to be a static field, one where the observation of the multitude of components that comprise a body can be catalogued and defined, similarities and differences alike. We too quickly can lend ourselves to the view that the purely biological is a relevant model for how we see ourselves and others, a worldview that seems banally inadequate when we see how many different forms of expression actually can and do emerge from this seemingly simple, physical starting point. It is this shared space of potential diversity that is so important to nurture and encourage, especially in the field of generative, digital arts where we can have a seemingly infinite diversity of expression, message and interactions.
These works are at once both an exploration of anatomical aesthetics that can remind us that we are composed of a diverse, rich interaction of life where the self is only a pat of a greater whole of being and simultaneously also how little any single way of viewing the world, e.g. anatomically, can tell us about how wildly different even the most similar assembly of components can express themselves. It is ever more important, especially in the field of digital, generative arts, that we encourage diversity, equality and the nurturing of individual voices, be they female, non-binary, non-human or other.
