X Ra y Ted Golf Bug
Artist: Joe Rush
Using found objects, flash light and recycled materials, this artwork combines two of the many medical discoveries of international significance carried out in Liverpool. In 1896, Nobel Prize-winning Charles Barkla was the first to use x-ray photography to reveal a bullet in a young boy’s wrist. Another breakthrough event was made in 1902 at Liverpool’s School of Tropical Medicine (the world’s first such school) by Nobel Prize winner Ronald Ross, who discovered that malaria is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. Both of these ground-breaking discoveries changed the methods of medical diagnosis forever.
