“Kathryn Parker Almanas’s recent series of photographs, Medical Interior, is a potent reminder of just how existentially unnerving a hospital stay can be. The 26-year-old artist says her aim was to consider medicine as an entity that is both comforting and threatening, but there is little in the way of comfort here. In one photo, a bare light box for viewing X-rays is like a beacon of dread. In others it is hard to know what is more unsettling: the cold, clinical spaces or the occasional fissures in the sterile veneer (test tubes capped in wrinkled tinfoil, a clouded glass beaker stained by dark liquid).”
