This is a more experimental film and is based on attending a Conference by Aberdeen Council on the 27th October 2016 in the old Anatomy Department of Marischal College.
The Conference was on “customer experience” and was extremely well put together. This meeting truly realised the benefits of shared learning and wider thinking. I felt very lucky to be a part of it.
I gave a brief 5 minute talk on “bedside manner” in the old dissecting room where 28 years ago I had learned anatomy.
One of the talks I most benefited from was by the philosopher Dr Bob Plant. His talk made me think of divides – the dissections of understandings. The film ends with dissections on the body of “Caledonian Antisyzygy”.
This film begins with my friend Dr Flaxman going up in the old lift to the Town House Archives. We had just left another lift behind, the lift in the Anatomy Department where bodies were brought up to the “Drain”. That is why I have called this film “The Body Lift”
