hand plays… (X-Rays)


Hand plays… 2005–2016. Art project of about 110 X-rays of the hand, these 6 series by Marc Ferrante have been carried out with the help of radiologists, surgeons and X-ray technicians, with the support of a dozen companies, The International Institute of Puppetry, the Strasbourg Youth Theatre, Pending Eclipse (a non-profit association) and with the contribution of marionettists, dancers, magicians, shadow-play or puppetry artists… 5+1 samples of each radiography have been issued; they have been displayed in digital print photos (108 x 130 cm or 42 1/2 x 51 3/16 in.) and in a stainless steel light box (36 x 43 x 9 cm or 13 3/4 x 16 15/16 x 3 9/16 in.). Although the existing pictures are pieces of digital art, but they are not the outcome of some computational trick.
