content An art and media exhibition inside the visiting day centre of a Rotterdam hospital. The positive and negative side-effects of limitless (self)medication and plastic surgery are investigated. design Parallel to the publicity and design for the Intracorp exhibition, I made a book on own initiative based on my interest for the topic. Besides (self)medication, the images of the book deal with mechanisation of the human body. The makability of the human body stands central, through a series of (manipulated) images from our daily surroundings. In the book there is imagery used of Critical Art Ensemble, Diller + Scofidio and Herwig Turk and a text of Maurice Nio.
