Abstract The machina carnis project investigates issues relating to first-person biomedical research, the recontextualizing of scientific digital image data and the re-privileging of the aesthetic experience of corporeality. The risks and ethics, potentials and pragmatics, of a visual artist engaging with contemporary experimental biomedical research - both practically and theoretically - are outlined and discussed. Within the matrices of an innovative, collaborative art/science research model a hybrid amalgamation of research practice and research subject occurs; featuring the artist as human guinea pig. The functional and speculative framework of the project is interrogated via its artistic outcome: the machina carnis installation.
