Tuberscopia addresses a problem of consent in the history of medicine through an exploration of visual practices in scientific research. The installation uses images from tuberculosis research at the turn of the twentieth century. Coming from a period before the codification of informed consent, the installation asks viewers to consider the different kinds of images which support medical research. On one hand there are images of sanatoria, of happy patients, and diagrams for treatment (the images on the slides in blue) and on the other hand there are images which are the result of extracting data from the bodies of sick, dying, or dead patients (the images on the slides in red).

Viewers are encouraged to look at each of the microscope slides using the magnifying glasses provided.
