A life size version of the children’s board-game “Operation”, where players were invited onto stage to use tweezers (kitchen tongs) to extract ‘organs’ without hitting the edges. (Hitting the edges of the organ hole resulted in a buzzing light/ losing the game) Each organ came with an accompanying description card highlighting its relevant features, including some few lesser-known characteristics of said organ for the individual depicted.
