From Professor Vesna's lecture, she mentions Orlan. An artist who had many operations done to herself to seem beautiful. This is as close as a relationship can get between MedTech and art coming together for something (Literally in Orlan's physical results).
Having gone through the lecture now completely I think that the relationship between Art and MedTech is a very important one now and will only continue to grow. The Art aspect of the relationship will give answers and further knowledge in the field of MedTech that can be very helpful. That being said in some cases this relationship as with Orlan may not the smartest thing (In my opinion). Overall the relationship has been around although I may not have recognized it as art, it is still something I think is highly valued and has a strong relationship.
