This AiA art piece displays the components of the circulation and provides physiological information about the pressures that exist in the system. The left ventricle pumps oxygenated blood into the aorta which transports the blood to the arterial system, capillary system, and to the end organ. The deoxygenated blood is transported via the venous system to the right side of the heart.
Artistically the red and the blue on the black background have a royal appearance.
Philosophically this piece reveals the dependence of the system on all the components. Without the pump there would be no transport. Without the tubular system there would be no delivery. Without the smallest member of the system – the capillaries – the perfusion and nutrient provision for the cells – an essential component of life would be nonexistent.
