Defibrillation

 

Artist’s statement

“Treadmill” tries to serve as a metaphor for human experiences, with varying paths and roads, ups and downs and surprises.  “Defibrillation” is a pictorial representation of a disruptive, abnormal heart beat, triggering a potentially fatal, irregular heart rhythm – which is successfully restored to normal by an electrical discharge.
