Scan me if you can
Gamer mirror augmented by vascular, skeleton, muscular, and dermic systems with sensors, gender recognition, computer and 75" screen, in lacquered glass and iroko wood.
Prospection is moved by imagination. Scan me if you can catches visitors, for a split second, to scan the inners, which make them. The visitors see the vascular system, which beats at the heart rate, the skeleton system, which supports them, the muscular system, which moves them, and the dermic system, which reconnects them to the world. The visitors are virtually being rebuilt inside-and-outside by futurist upcoming medical imaging. Scan me if you can focuses more onto the visitors' appetite for videogames than to their health.
