Many of the subjects of my X-Ray art are either from my personal collection or sourced on E-Bay. They were selected for appeal, iconography, size, and material. If mostly metal, the objects were “photographed” using digital (direct radiography) X-Ray. Otherwise, CT (computerized tomography) was considered. Digital X-ray yields one image per exposure, whereas CT produces as many as 700 images (or slices) at a time, each around .5 millimeters thick.

The smallest subjects were beetles from Indonesia. The largest subjects were Peruvian mummies, bound and preserved in the fetal position, housed at the Museum of Man in Balboa Park.

Robots were staged to impart a particular feeling or emotion. Subtle changes can imbue menace, prowess, sexuality, humor, boredom or inanimacy.

When working with direct radiography, I pose the subject and take a shot.  With CT, there were infinite possibilities by manipulating a virtual 3-D object on my digital OsiriX workstation after the capture. In either case, these is much post processing to be done.
