12:31 is a photographic series concept by Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott. ‘In 1993, a murderer was executed and his body was given to science. It was segmented and photographed for research. That footage was used to create 7 photographs. An animation of the 1871 slices was played fullscreen on a computer, which was moved around by an assistant while being photographed in a dark environment. The resulting images are long-exposure “light paintings” of the entire cadaver.
