My, what gorgeous insides you have

SVA-professor-turned-medical-student Satre Stuelke takes CT scans of cultural ephemera to first see their inner workings, but also to create something visually arresting. With equipment time donated by the Weill Cornell Biomedical Imaging Center he scans the objects and then assigns colors to different densities, ending up with works that often don’t resemble the originals, and challenge conventional perspective.


A remotely controlled mechanical dog toy. The tail is the antenna.


A set of Russian nested dolls.


A Christmas Barbie. (Whatever that is).


6-piece chicken McNuggets.

You can see more images, videos, and submit your own idea for something to scan on Stuelke’s site, Radiology Art.

I guess more than one guy had this idea – http://www.amazon.com/X-Ray-See-Through-World-Around/dp/0670020400/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1238517941&sr=1-1

Yeah, but the CT scanners afford more manipulation of the end product. No?

But dude, if I had access to any sort of x-ray or scanning machine, of course i’d be doing it too. Just a high-tech version of photocopying objects around the office… and your ass.

And so I did…

I’ve always wanted a set of Russian nested dolls.

Me too! Why is that?

And so you did indeed.

I know it’s my art conservation training speaking here, but with a name like Radiology Art I would expect Xrays of artwork. Those are pretty awesome too. Not convinced that any of it is art, though.

I respectfully disagree. Shall we discuss over coffee?
