Human hologram 2

In 1993 convicted murderer Joseph Paul Jernigan was executed. Having donated his body to scientific research, he was preserved and cut in to 1,871 slices as part of the 'Visible Human Project', to provide high resolution, cross section images of the human anatomy. www.nlm.nih.gov/research/visible/visible_human.html

 

Using these images in the form of a video animation vimeo.com/21515164 coupled with long exposure photography. It is possible to recreate and extrude a holographic representation of his body.

 

Please note that the idea for this shot was taken from project 12:31 www.project1231.com/ Follow the link for the original idea and more detailed information.

 

My image was taken over a twenty second exposure. While dragging an iPad through the shot playing the Vimeo link above.
