complete bodies

So at which point is a body complete? A body of work, a human body, a body?
Missing parts complete or deplete the body? The work? The picture? The photograph...? I am currently looking at bodies that have lost limbs in tragic and violent circumstances. But is the tragedy really timelessly, continually present or is the presence of absence in a way fabricated and nourished by projection of expectation not met (the expectation of having or seeing a 'complete' body with no 'absences'...)..?

Documentation or creation of a different perception..?
