Ayako Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi, art students from Japan, showed us a new way of looking into human intimacy. The artists used CT scan and x-ray machine to make unusual images of 4 couples embracing each other in different fashions. The final imagery creates an ambivalent experience for the viewer as the beautifully intimate act of embrace is being demonstrated in a rather ghostly way, unraveling the world that lies under our skin. We normally associate such ghostly x-ray pictures of skeletons with illness, death and loneliness. However, these artists manage to challenge our perception of human interaction and bring it to a new, be it slightly chilling, light. The artwork was created as a final thesis project at Musashino Art University and recently won the 2013 Mitsubishi Chemical Junior Designer Award.
