12:31

April 4th, 2011

12:31 is a photographic series by Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott. In 1993, a convicted murderer was executed. His body was given to science, segmented, and photographed for research. Croix and Frank used that footage to create these 7 photographs. An animation of the 1871 slices was played fullscreen on a computer, which was moved around by an assistant while being photographed in a dark environment. The resulting images are long-exposure “light paintings” of the entire cadaver. Stunning work! Prints are for sale for $700 and all proceeds benefit Amnesty International.
