In designing “The Pool of Bethesda” I attempted to create a space that evoked the search for truth and immortality that occurs in both art and science. Through researching anatomical theaters, specifically the theater in Archiginnasio of Bologna, and wax medical sculptures found in the Museo la Specelo, I was able to further understand the conflicts of the play. In these sources I found an elegant combination ofthe medical world and the artistic world that informed my design process and led a completed set that was reminiscent of an anatomical theater.
