Abstract

Laura Ferguson's The Visible Skeleton Series constitutes an artistic self-representation of scoliosis. Ferguson employs high-tech medical imaging and innovative graphical techniques to suggest a novel view of her skeletal "deformity." This section presents introductions to the series by a historian of medicine and by the artist herself, and offers personal and professional reflections on the work from an orthopedic surgeon, a social worker with lived experience of cleft lip, and a retired pediatric forensic pathologist.
