Double Echo

From Flight W38, Inkjet print. 1340 x 1140 mm, edition of 4 – Collection artist and Central Middlesex Hospital

One of the scientists working on the echograms and with whom I spent some time out on the ice, showed me some of the echograms in his computer and he, knowing of my interest in echocardiograms said “these are like the heartbeat of the Earth”. This prompted me to bring the pilot who made these flights, down to Central Middlesex hospital where I was working, to have his heartbeat read. So this echogram from East Antarctica is superimposed with an echocardiogram of the heartbeat of that pilot. Both imaging techniques are very similar; one using radar and the other ultrasound
