"The human body is the only machine for which there are no spare parts." - Hermann M. Biggs, MD. (d.1923)

"Works of the Flesh: Third Study" is the latest in an ongoing film and light-box series of intricate experimental films where identity, health condition, and fatalism of the human body are explored. Through a number of medical practices, procedures, and remedies gleaned from found super 8 and 16 mm medical films of the 1950s-1970s, each of the films in this series inspects an affliction and what may be done to acquire medical assistance or prolong life. In this study, the affliction is knee reconstruction.
