The sculpture is based on an actual MRI-scan of a human brain and illustrates the technique of an MRI-scan including its small imperfections.
An MRI-scan of the brain consists of voxels, which are three-dimensional pixels. Each voxel contains a greyscale value that is determined by the type of tissue (i.e. grey or white matter). Depending on the MRI-scanner, voxels can be as small as 0.1 mm3. Although an MRI-scan enables to accurately image the brain or other organs, it also suffers from small deformations.
