X-rays of toys

Stuart sez, "This Flickr gallery shows highlights from Scan Toys, an exhibit currently at Buenos Aires Centro Cultural Recoleta. The artists used X-rays to produce these and the resulting images are beautiful, with a hint of social commentary."

  1. what is that mummy sarcophagus thing? was that a game where you stuck pins through it in strategic ways? what was that called? or am i just imagining that something like that existed?

  2. I knew a guy (a doctor) who had an anatomically-correct model of a baby (complete with skeleton), which he’d occasionally carry onto planes, just to see the look on the security guard’s face when it passed through the X-Ray machine.

  3. i think i might be thinking of “curse of the cobras” which for some reason my parents gave me for a birthday over 20 years ago! i wish i still had it; scared the crap out of me.

  4. Sheila Pinkel was doing X-rays of Kachina Dolls back in the 80s, which I didn’t appreciate at the time.

    She did a lot of interesting stuff with “alternate” light: camera-less photography using UV, X-Rays, IR, and so on.
