The blood of the city: Heather L. Johnson


To follow up on my post on Kevin Van Aelst, here's an anatomically-inspired artwork by Heather L. Johnson, whose new show, "Air and Blood", opens this month in NYC:

Using the Holland Tunnel as a point of departure, the artist investigates the way in which anatomical processes are mimicked in the transfer of people, objects and ideas in the urban environment.

I think that's a motorbike in that circulatory diagram - which of course invites comparison with the work of Josh Hadar.
