Section 1: The Body in Pieces


The purpose of this section is to relate the anatomical body to our experience of personhood. The body we experience and the body we cut into with our scalpels seem sometimes to belong to different worlds. Art can bring the physical and imagined body together, or create even greater distance between them, forcing us to reflect on how they connect or interact.

Objective: Articulate the difference between objective and subjective approaches to the physical body.
