I’m doing some research to help with the conception of this project. When I started I had no idea what direction to take my research or even where to start. I started looking up articles about organ transplants and articles about China.
I ended up with:
Apparently, Iran is the only country where organ trade is legal. People are willing to sell their organs for money. A person, Marzieh, in the name of honor and family, she sold her kidney for her daughter’s wedding.
I then found infographs on the value of organs:
It’s a little creepy seeing these parts of my body that could be sold for a certain value. I then got curious and wanted to see what I could buy with that money. Kind of like if, I had a million dollars what would I buy? How much was an iPad and iPhone worth in terms of organs?
