What does love look like when it’s been stripped to the bone? Ayako Kanda and Hayashi Mayuka, students at Japan’s Musashino Art University, put romantic couples and a pair of twin sisters into a CT Scan and X-Ray machine and took their pictures.
The artists hoped to show the essence of human connection, minus the trappings of physical appearance. “X-ray images usually show the finite nature of our bodies composed only of matter,” said the duo.
The series earned the pair a prize at the Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Awards.
