Untitled, Bruise Study. 2015. Nesbitt Gallery @ University of Science and Arts Oklahoma. #bruise #drywall #painting The works, Untitled, Bruise Study are humble reminders of our body’s physicality and I give reverence to these ephemeral markings by enlarging and embedding them in a building material, drywall.

@Regrann from my other account @remains2beseen - This image is a post mortem artefact called "tache noire" which literally means "black patch/spot" and is fairly frequent - I've seen it a good few times at autopsy. It occurs when the sclera of the eye becomes discoloured because the deceased has their eyes slightly open. As the transparent sclera stays in contact with the air it dries out, turning it first yellow, then brown, then black. To the untrained eye this could look like an injury which is why pathology staff and medical examiners are (or should be!) trained so well. This is not the only post-mortem artefact which could be mistaken for an injury by the untrained eye and I'll feature more on the site soon. #humanremains #anatomy #pathology #forensics #forensicscience #autopsy #autopsytechnician #APT #pathologytechnician #Regrann
