What’s health got to do with it?

matcloud_luciaRound 2 of Season 3 of Fotolia’s TEN Collection revolves around health. This time Fotolia paired photographer Lucia Giacani and artist Mateusz Chmura (MatCloud) together to create a surreal piece. Both having backgrounds in industrial design, their concept involved displaying organs as products that look more artificial than biological. If you are curious about their process (or them) watch this video.

Their portrayal of artificial organs, got the gears whirring in my head for the design challenge. What if in the future replacing organs became as commonplace as walking into a grocery store and buying a new carton of milk or switching out parts to your car? Hearts, lungs, livers etc. are easily and artificially made. Organ donor lists are a thing of the past. So I came up with the “Body Shop.” Walk in, purchase the part that you need, and have it installed onsite. My idea did take on a darker tone as I searched for additional source images to compliment the ones provided for the contest. Here’s my result and if it intrigues you, you can vote for it here by clicking the like button.
