Abstract:
The goal of this honors thesis is to facilitate in the general public, an understanding of respiratory physiology and the effects of cigarette smoke on respiratory system function. To accomplish this task I created an art installation comprising acrylic paintings on canvas and physiologic forms modelled in clay. After researching the current literature on tobacco smoke and respiratory system function I created these nine art pieces over the course of 16 weeks culminating in a two week (May 4th – May 18th 2015) public health art exhibit in the Kachina Lounge, Student Union, at The University of Arizona. Three acrylic paintings introduced the audience to the respiratory system, stages of lung cancer and the cycle of nicotine addiction. Six accompanying clay sculptures served to illustrate the changes that occur in cilia, alveoli, and bronchioles with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
