This artwork is titled ‘Depersonalisation in medicine (“(Mis)recognition”). It was produced by a project called 'Patient as Paper’, between an artist, Emma Barnard, and a clinical consultant and ear-nose-throat surgeon, Mike Papesch, in 2013. The artwork displays a concern that record-keeping reduces a patient to a collection of signs and symptoms and, in doing so, fails to capture the person behind the record. This is a criticism which is made of electronic records, as well as paper ones.
