Vanessa Guckel was repeatedly hospitalised for morphology issues and spent a lot of time with metal structures inserted into her spine. In her mind and for many years, Vanessa suffered from physical anomalies that did not fit societal norms and stereotypes. Today, this anatomical difference allows her to complement her investigation of the human body together with architectural elements.
Using the original titanium pieces that se had in her back for many years, she has given them another function and representation. What orthopedically sustained her are today unique pieces of diamond incrusted jewellery.
