This exhibition is a co-production of artist, lawyer and sociologists working collaboratively for the last 24 months in the area of implantable smart technologies (ISTs). ISTs are devices that are inserted into the body for therapy (or otherwise), and might be considered ‘smart’. We conducted workshops, literature reviews, and interviews to discover what people might think of ISTs and automated medicine. All of the findings of the research were discussed with the artist, inspiring her to depict the often ambivalent and contradictory views.
