Intimate X-Ray Portraits of Different Couples by  Saiko Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi

Artists Saiko Kanda and Mayuka Hayashi have taken photos of couples to an entirely new level with these incredibly intimate X-Ray Portraits. The two student artists used CT scans and X-ray machines to document pairs of people within very close proximity. The skeletons seem cold and lonely, yet the closeness of the bodies suggests that the two forms are actually experiencing personal intimacy.

The raw images portray the human body as muscles and bones, and the lack of soft skin eliminates the viewer’s normal understanding of human touch. The story of the two forms is told, rather, through gestures and body language, and viewers are left to determine the relationship between the couples. “X-ray images usually show the finite nature of our bodies composed only of matter. But these couples’ portraits reveal a pulse that isn’t normally seen,” explain the two students from Musashino Art University in Japan.

It is a lonely feeling when someone you care about becomes a stranger.

1. If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink.
2. Green Catastrophe: If you stare at the black + in the center, the moving dot turns to green.
3. Reality Shatter: Now, concentrate on the black + in the center of the picture. After a short period of time, many if not all of the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you may only see a green dot rotating.
 What does this tell us about the nature of reality? There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don’t disappear. If our brains are so easily fooled, what aspects of reality are we missing?

I can’t make the pink ones disappear =/
