An Anatomy of Accelaration, 2006; 16.5" x 11.5, Digital Lythography
"An Anatomy of Acceleration" is from a series of superimposed skeletal x-rays. The light permitted through the filters produced by x-ray imaging were manipulated after their digitalization. The manipulation simulates the shape of the human form in forward motion just before its acceleration reaches the speed of light. Partially inspired in early science fiction video representations of the frozen moment a space vessel sits in before it takes off at warp speed, this image attempts to still the apparently impossible situation of highly accelerated forward motion wherein the human form is beginning to transform into light energy. It is representing the structure of a timeless moment, perhaps how it might be scene in the fourth dimension, rather than trying to capture a moment in time isolating it from a series of events.
