Shot entirely at the Department of Radiology and the Department of Oncology at Odense University Hospital, Denmark, Cross Section is an ethnographic exploration of man and machine interaction in the pursuit of curing cancer and other deceases.

In this visual and sonic environment, the machines dictate the phase of life in order for the translation and digitalization of the organic body to take place. Cross Section shows health practice from machinic perspectives to make explicit the human pursuit of diagnosis and treatment of cancer to prolong life on earth.
