Abstract: The written portion of the thesis is an analysis of the conceptual and aesthetic concerns of a series of artworks exploring the effects and relationships of medical and technological interventions on the body. My M.F.A. thesis installation includes video, sound, interactive sculpture, and wearable performative prosthesis. A repulsive playfulness is the underlying theme of the artwork. By creating these uncomfortable experiences, I hope to make the viewer more aware of their own body.
