Transmutation of human bodies is an ongoing series of drawings that explores the contemporary human body beyond the perception of an enclosed biological system. This body, whose boundaries are precarious if not dissolved is under the influence of foreign processes that it cannot control. Various biological phenomena such as cell disease and fungal parasites are constantly transforming the internal and the external anatomical landscape. The co existence of the human and the alien is opening up new ways of understanding the body and the self.
