In her sculpture work, Anne Mondro has created a captivating metaphor for the close-knit relationships between medical patients and their caregivers. The artist uses a crochet hook and tinned copper wire to construct realistic 3D models of the heart, representing the human pulse—both literal and physical—within the healthcare system.
The class matched students with persons with dementia via the U-M Geriatric Center, encouraging the artists to consider the ways that creativity might provide an empowering, enlivening balm during times of illness. Over the ensuing years, Mondro has witnessed many tender relationships between the memory loss patients and their caregivers. Check out the images below.
