Damnum v Quaestus

Bioethics is not only fundamental to determining or guiding how we live and die, but its role as the key interconnecting strand in discourses between various disciplines, the public and decision makers is unique. This role fascinates me: not only how it functions, but also how it is informed, evolves and resolves continuously. 

‘Damnum v Quaestus’ or loss versus gain, demonstrates visually the continuous narrative that permeates bioethical discourses. The works consider through the use of selected materials how the perspectives and values we hold may alter our viewing of the sculptures.
