‘Artists are nothing if not avid consumers of images and image-making technologies. The products of their labours have always shown evidence of creative acts of borrowing and reinvention.’

Ken Arnold, Strange and Charmed

Tahera Aziz was commissioned by Zest Arts for Health and the Peninsula Radiology Academy to be an artist-in-residence at the Academy in Plymouth. The purpose of residency was to produce 2D artwork inspired by the discipline of radiology, to celebrate the opening of the Academy as an educational environment for trainee radiologists. Work Modes is a series of six Duratrans images, focusing on the art of reporting, currently displayed in the Academy in anodised metal light boxes. The images highlight the solitary nature of this activity and the intimate involvement of the radiologist with technologies of visual display and examination.
