Apprised and Reprised

Overview of space; illustrates the contrast between artificial and natural tissue storage, the private medicinal/research spaces, as well as key circulatory pathways.

Apprised and Reprised

Apprised and Reprised aims to demystify the taboos associated with human tissue transplantation and donation within Australia. Visitors explore the proposed Tissue Bank through the amplification of practices and processes, encouraging a new perception on this issue to be formed. Located on Albert Park Lake, due to its relationship with the upcoming 2014 Transplant Games, the bank forms connections between the natural and the artificial; life and death, as well as both civic and small scales. Tissue donation is currently overshadowed by that of solid organ donation within both Australia, and with the current supply not meeting the demand, this proposal is as much a necessity as it is a requirement for our future.
