Rachel Stuckey’s It Takes All Sorts distorts cinematic tropes and embodies an animistic worldview to consider the shift of healthcare practices from natural and body-centric to synthetic and technocentric. Using the domain of the woods as a laboratory combined with soundtrack elements from 1970s educational films, native flora become peculiar characters suspended in an ominous landscape.
