eXpressionist Statement:

My project is based on the research of Lauren Obman, “Commercially Available Video Games Can Differentiate Visual Perception and Dexterity Skills Between Expert Interventional Radiologists and Non-Experts.” In my piece, Dr. Mario represents the connection between video games and the skills needed by an interventional radiologist, because Mario is dressed up as a doctor and is operating on a patient. The 1-Up mushroom next to the patient represents how video games help give an "extra life" to patients by increasing the skills of professionals who operate on them. I hope this piece sheds light on the slight significance of video games in the medical field.
