Intimate X-Ray Portraits of Couples by Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi

By | January 4, 2014

Student artists from Japan Ayako Kanda and Mayuka have created a quite commendable piece of art work by showing the human friendly relationship with each other by the use of x-ray images to help subdivide the skin. The layers of the skin are closely knit such that they never leave each other if they do one of them is left in great pain and for the pain to subside the part which has been taken away has to be replaced. This is what this creative duo used to describe the human relationship with each other. The skin, hair and flesh always stay intact forever and so are the friendly humans.

The duo used a CT scan equipment to image the triple different intimate people seated together. The resulting thing was an array of satanic white frames of humans resting together holding each other in a friendly manner. The images are so touching because their arrangement represents a group of human beings who can come together and forgive each other and work as a group. The x-ray representation displays a medical or a health process.  They used the images taken by the medical practitioners with no good reason as to why.

This piece of art was part of the duos academic thesis project at Musashino Art University. Through this project the students also won an award from the Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Award.
