Artists Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi used a CT scanner and an X-ray machine to take portraits of couples in close proximity.
“X-ray images usually show the finite nature of our bodies composed only of matter,” say the duo. “But these couples portraits reveal a pulse that isn’t normally seen.” Romantic? No. Intimate? Absolutely.
Kanda and Hayashi conceived the body of work for their senior thesis exhibition at Musashino Art University. They went on to win a prize in the recent Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Award.
