Like a piece pulled from a cabinet of curiosities, The Anatomically Correct Chair by Sam Edkins is an eerie reminder to sit up straight. Each chair is an old piece that Edkins has reconditioned and reupholstered, digitally imprinting velvet with images from old medical journals.
The overstuffed shapes hearken back to Victorian parlor furniture, while the style references memento mori, a Latin phrase and genre of art dating back to Classical antiquity. The translation? Remember your mortality. Creepy! And just in time for Halloween, too.
