The drawings are ornamental perversions of Gray’s Anatomy (1858), a textbook still used in medical practice; the ship is from a celestial map of the Southern hemisphere by an uknown Dutch cartographer from the 1750s. I used pen and ink and transparent paper, and added nothing (apart from tracing the tattoo from my arm), only shifted the paper and started again, reversed it, hallucinating new body parts. Like the formalised and restricted depiction of body parts in Gray’s Anatomy, people often think that desires are simple and few, such as wanting sex, money, food, love and so on. Once you start switching perspectives, this simplicity explodes into beautiful and terrifying shapes (not unlike the limbs of dead people depicted in the anatomy book), which reach beyond themselves in many directions. The moving and reaching and overlapping of limbs literally produces new patterns which surround the shape of the known like a decorated frame.
