Implanted is a project which presents images of discarded surgical implants at the end of life. Most of the implants have been recovered following cremation, the exception being the pacemakers which are removed prior to cremation.
On first viewing my images I found them unusual and strangely beautiful. I decided to try to represent them in a different light by positioning and photographing them as art objects. This has the effect of changing the viewer’s perception of the nature of these objects.
All of these components, which were once a very important part of someone’s life are recycled and melted down providing, a new life for these materials
