An Executed Convict Returns to Life, in Mind Blowing 3-D Light Paintings via FastCoDesign
It is made using the light painting hologram technique, where a cross section is displayed (in this case, a sliced cross section of a convict which donated his body for science) from a flat screen and captured on a long exposure shot.
Yes, 3-D light painting — in which a flat glowing image is traced through the air to form a quasi-3D version captured in long-exposure photographs — is an amazingly creative hack. But Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott have taken the technique to a truly mindblowing — and emotionally affecting — level with Project 12:31. Their own description can’t be topped: “In 1993, a convicted murderer was executed. His body was given to science, segmented, and photographed for medical research. In 2011, we used photography to put it back together.”
