Wellcome Collection

Medicine now addresses existing medical problems such as obesity, this made me think about the condition and whether it is a problem for the NHS to solve or a problem that we should solve alone as humans; the most shocking piece depicting self image and perception was 'I cant help the way i feel' by John Issacs 2003, it is a sculpture of a human body being engulfed by lumps of flesh and rashes. The piece made me wonder whether it was targeting obesity or how self perception and image has spiralled out of control causing humans to become wrapped up in the idea of image. Medicine now aslo looked at the human form displaying various sculptures of the human form, identifying sight, skeleton and the human brain. This exhibit made me think about how far medicine has excelled and how humans have adapted and altered due to medical advances.
