(2013; object/ mosaic; fragmented radiographs; found footage; steel-framed; both sides glassed with sandblasted glass; measures 130 x 120 cm; edition of 3; various sizes possible; also planned as architectonical element)
A collection of x-ray images of unknown people were fragmented into equilateral triangles and rearranged. This allowed me to remove the material from its medical-diagnostic context. The process was accompanied by thoughts about the relationship between photography and radiological imaging. The visual effect of the x-ray mosaic is by nature spatial and two-dimensional. Repeated viewing gave rise to further plans for organizing the material.
I noticed that the material slowly develops a patina as the fragments change its color into pastel tones of purple, green, sepia and yellow, depending of the amount of sunlight the object is exposed to. The bottom images show details from november 2019.
