Stephen's inspiration for the piece:
"After spending years researching the function and dysfunction of the heart, I have a special fondness for this, my favorite organ. In this piece I've recreated the heart using the text from a seminal 1809 monograph of cardiology, in which the symptoms of 11 patients with heart disease (one of whom was the governor of Massachusetts) are described both as they presented in the doctor's office and, later, on the dissecting table."
