Your University, One Photo at a Time

Anatomy Dissection in the Garden

Anatomy Dissection in the Garden

I just realized that I’ve never specifically featured the art installation on Library Hill. Yes, there’s an art installation between the Fraser Building and University Avenue, one which you’re encouraged to sit on. The ten benches on the grassy knoll, coupled with hedges and small trees, are part of an art installation called To Be Set and Sown in the Garden, by Christine Borland, erected on the University’s 55oth anniversary in 2001.

The unorthodox looking benches are modeled after anatomy dissection tables, evident in the porcelain headrest and the groove for the blood to flow off from. Think about that the next time you sit or lie down on the benches!

If you want to read more about the installation, I wrote a lengthier article about it a year ago on a different blog.
