Atwork for an interactive video on a hydrocephalus surgery was created to explain the condition and introduce a new procedure. This still image was an example for the video portion on normal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulation.The blue arrows and watery blue fill areas illustrate how the CSF bathes the brain and spinal cord in fluid. In the video, these arrows and fill texture would flow with movement.
Anatomical sites that may be a cause of hydrocephalus, such as CSF overproduction, absorption problems, aqueduct narrowing, or other CSF blockages were highlighted on this artwork and discussed later in the video. Since the audience for this piece was parents of children facing a serious medical condition, a delicate color palette and sketchy style was used. A video narration and onscreen labeling accompanied the artwork to reinforce the important points.
