X-Ray Art

I remember moving into a huge house with a couple of friends in downtown Toronto in the late 60's. The three-storey house apparently belonged to a doctor who lived there with his famil and ran his practice downstairs. We spent a lot of time exploring this place and among the cool stuff left behind (we never found out what happened to the good doctor and his family) was an old fluoroscope machine. It became a source of amusement for many a party, much like those old x-ray machines that they used to have in shoe stores that allowed Mom to see if your shoes were too tight. That is, until they discovered that too much x-ray exposure was bad for you!

Artist Satre Stuelke created a series of eerie images of everyday items using a CAT scan: food, toys, you name it. Check out his site HERE. Below? A McDonald's Filet-o-Fish Sandwich (WITH sauce, of course!).
