In the spirit of proformance art I would like to generate a system that would allow the dead to dance.This performance dance would display the core of the human body in a 3 dimentional state. The idea is to allow people to see the "graceful" movement of the machinery that actually holds their bodies together. More importantly I hope that this will create a spiritual state for the viewer and make them feel in peace and harmony with the human body.
This performance requires the use of x-ray equipment as well as the use of 3-D holography. In combination, both of these technologies would allow for the skellital system of the human body to dance.Eventhough this has never been attempted, modern technology is on the verge of being able to present an x-ray in hollographic form.
Holographic imagery is created
by having a laser beam cut in two directions. One beam is focussed on the
hollographic film and the other beam is focused on the object. When the
object laser light is focussed, it picks up the dimensional information
of the object. That is then carried by light, which is picked up by the
hollographic film. Once the film is developed it projects a 3 dementional
image of the object that was filmed.
In this particular project, the object of focus would be the x-ray scanner. The dancers must stand behind the scanner, witch is the object being filmed. This would allow the film to pick up the x-ray version of the dancers. Once the film is developed it will project a skellital ghost image of the dancers.
