Clean Bill of Health

By Collin Kather

Project Description
“Clean BILL of Health” prompts users to think about medical procedure through the scope of a retail environment. Users will interact with a children’s game board for input – see the results of the interaction on the computer screen as a retail register – and then the output will print out a store-style receipt of the procedure performed. While with no clear objective in mind, I do aim to expose the hypocrisy of a system that prioritizes the lives of those with the biggest bank accounts. The commodification of the human body has become too frequent a practice in healthcare, and this project will put in perspective the essentials of how the system operates beneath the surface.
