  • The digestive juices eroded the protective layer of the capsule inside the stomach. Then the vigorous acid made its way to the 35 mm camera film rolled inside a capsule, that a student ingested as part of his final year project in the school of art and photography.
    Letting the inner workings of the human body do the work and eventually be the canvas for the idea behind his university project.By rationally letting the acid react with the film, he was able to capture the surface of his digestive system into a series of a digital and electronic masterpiece shots. He pooped the films in total darkness, for light not to burn the very delicate carvings and imprinted shadows of his "insides". He then viewed the film under electron microscopy ( the cover picture ).

    Personally, i think its beautiful how even on the surfaces of our insides, one can recognize a divine microscopic architecture. A mystical arrangement and an almost supernatural world within. But this is just the surface of the stomach, nothing supernatural about that right? Just the surface of a very integral yet very natural organ inside all of us. However when i indulged my mind and took a deeper look behind the totality and meaning of the art.

    It boggled me in a way, and made me think.

    That maybe we are just a liquid universe trapped inside another liquid universe. That It doesn't even matter how stretched or compact is our reality on the scales of space and time. I suddenly have an urge to disregard how big or how minuscule these two universes can be.
    Because suddenly both of them, were me.
