Title: The Digital Anatomical Theater: Scientific Practices For Representing The Body.
Author: Monteiro, Marko
Abstract: Contemporary scientific practices for representing the body are investigated ethnographically through a comparative analysis with the Renaissance anatomical theater, a practice used to understand the body in early modern science. First and foremost, I seek to reveal the manner in which visualization of the inside of the body produces knowledge of its functioning. The conclusion is that, currently, the production of knowledge greatly privileges the validation of code and modeling of the biological processes in which one wishes to intervene. The objective is to unveil the meaning of the circulation of images, data and theories that bring together material bodies, visualization techniques and scientists, enabling the production of truth about the body in a biological sense.
