  2. In the 15th century, the spoken word celebrated the human body and human potential in the world in the form of remarkable anatomy lectures inspired by ancient Greek and Latin texts. In the 21st century, the rich use of new media technologies can make an even greater impact on audiences by peering beneath the skin of not only individual bodies but entire populations of them.

    In my TED2012 Full Spectrum lecture, I will "transform" myself into a personalized anatomical avatar that is the digital embodiment of my electronic health information. I will show how this visualization and tracking system can help prevent disease, rehabilitate stroke or heart attack patients, and improve one's health over time.

    I will then ask audience members to send me a text message with their gender, age, weight, and at least one health issue. Based on this data, I will create an instant collective body -- a realtime aggregated medical portrait of potentially everyone in the audience. The collective Medical Avatar will aggregate epidemiological trends, providing artists and scientists with a powerful tool to see the world around us and perhaps help shape a more equitable and prosperous future for human health.
