Kyle T Amber

Thinking back to his last memory before a tonsillectomy, Mr Amber created this digital art piece using large circular semi-opaque digital brush strokes to recreate the haziness of the operating room and surgeons. Now as a medical student, Mr Amber feels it is important to reflect on the patient's perspective of the surgical experience.

Mr Amber is a medical student at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
