Our postdoc Adam Bencard is working on the new exhibition about metabolism, which is soon to be set up in our satellite exhibition area in the main building of the Faculty of Health Sciences (the Panum building).
He’s in a good mood. The graphic designer’s sketch for the show, by coincidence, has much the same colour scheme as the mosaic-like art work, by David Goodsell, commissioned for the windows of the exhibition room. This chaotic piece of art that Adam`s looking at, depicts an enlarged human muscle, where all the different muscle cells become one big and beautiful entanglement.
In Adams view, such forms of art can help us understand our own body as more than just a controllable and effective biological machine. He points out, that there is much more coincidence and well functioning confusion at play in the internal human body, than the traditional scientific models would have us believe.
