New technologies, from computer science to machine learning, are transforming medical imaging and its role in medicine. Medical image technologies convert the medical body into data, entangling the biological with the digital, the material with the immaterial. Machines are changing the very nature of the medical image, its use in medicine, and its relationship to the body.
Digital Insides is a collaborative arts project about trust, evidence, ethics, consent and technology in medical imaging. Through dialogues and artist interventions it aims to reclaim medical images. Pulling them away from clinical settings, Digital Insides asks what else medical images can become.
Visual dialogues are recorded and edited conversations with patients who are looking at their medical images, often for the first time. In these conversations there are both echoes and disruptions of the doctor-patient relationship. They are an experimental form of collaborative interpretation, which aims to work across and weaken the traditional medical-cultural boundaries.
