In 1993, a convicted murderer was executed.  His body was given to science, segmented, and photographed for medical research.  In 2011, we used photographer to put it back together.

12:31 is a series of photographs concepted by Croix Gagnon and photographed by Frank Schott.  The process of making these haunting images is similar to creating the long-exposure light paintings we’ve all seen become popular over the past few years. The images Croix and Frank managed to capture through this process are other worldly!

The Process:
An animation of the sequence of 1,871 male cadaver slices from the Visible Human Project was created.  This animation was then played full screen on a laptop and moved through a dark environment while being photographed. The result is a series of ghostly misshapen images of the Visible Human cadaver in space.
