Triumph by aliceferox Triumph by aliceferox

I haven't used x-rays in my work in awhile so this is a nice refresher to how cool and interesting they are. This is an x-ray of post-operative scoliosis corrective surgery. There are structures in place to correct the bend in the spine. I view this as a triumph over nature. Science and medicine have brought order to this person's spine. The overlay you see behind and within the x ray is ivy growing on the structure of a building. Nature being dependent on man in a strange way. This is just another observation I've seen in which homo sapiens continue to change the world around them.

I was a little hesitant at first about the readme, but I'm glad I checked out your work. I'm currently in a couple of biology classes for a Lab Tech degree, so these sorts of anatomical artworks are super cool right now!

i knew the moment i saw this it was Scoliosis. lol I used to have it when I was middle school. What caused it was #1 cause, wearing a heavy backpack on one shoulder, thought it looked cool but in the end all that weight shifted my spine to be curved and not straight. since then and the surgery i wore backpacks with two straps.... by the way so painful it was to bend over and certain positions.

Really dark as always. keep up the great work!

Thanks for looking.

I'm glad you could connect with this piece and yeah I believe what you said about those backpacks. I remember mine was really heavy also and I would never wear both shoulder straps.

Sounds like a painful experience.
