Project Description

The purpose of this assignment is to depict an area of normal tissue and compare it to an abnormal version of that same tissue. I chose to depict multiple types of both malignant and benign abnormal tissues that can form within the breast in order to educate patients of a lay audience who might develop any of the tissues.  The piece provides a smaller view of a female torso to provide orientation for the lay viewer, however, the main element is a mid-sagittal cross section of the entire breast. I chose not to include vascularization of the tissue because I felt that it would distract from the goal of the project, which can succeed without this element. While the patients cannot see these tissues without aid, the piece can act as an educational supplement for those who are interested in the particular condition they or a loved one may suffer from.
