A computed tomography (CT) scan found in a public bin in Buenos Aires and a brick taken from a construction site in Berlin, are the elements, which lay the groundwork for connecting these repurposed objects. 

BA/B/B traces day to day human activities and materials, to chase the fleeing notion of a realistic image of the human body. 

By cutting the CT scan and arranging it in a vertebral order, the subject, a 38-year old male called Ricardo Beirut, becomes a haunting object of industrial dystopia.
