‘Health is life lived in the silence of the organs’, wrote French surgeon René Leriche in an Encyclopédie Française entry from 1936. Paradoxically, the closer we have got to this metaphorical silence, the more necessary an aesthetic synthesis, through increasingly complex and precise sounds and images, has become.

The current paradigm of health technology, where bodies and their representations are sometimes indistinguishable, is the core of this film: an audiovisual study on the relationship between the human body and the latest hospital technology, focusing on the liminal situations where the real and the represented merge.
