In the summer of 2007, artist and medical student Satre Stuelke started the Radiology Art project.  Dedicated to the deeper visualization of various objects that hold unique cultural importance in modern society, this project intends to plant a seed of scientific creativity in the minds of all those inclined to participate.  Satre Stuelke compiled a collection of amazing views of the hidden world inside of objects. Using CT scanners and X-ray machines, he’s captured the unknown world behind everyday things including toys and electronics.  Depending on the spread of densities within a particular subject, black or white backgrounds are chosen, images are then further processed in Adobe Photoshop for proper contrast and balance.  We think it would be very interesting to see the results of this art printed in 3D digital print and then viewed through the Augmented Reality process from Total Immersion.

THE ARTIST
Satre Stuelke lives and works in New York City. He has shown his work across the globe in numerous gallery and museum exhibitions and has also sold work through Sotheby’s ArtLink. He has an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has taught at many prestigious institutions including the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan.

The photos include a CT scan of a toy elephant, a CT scan of a barbie doll which surprisingly,  has a rather detailed skeletal structure, most extensively present in the legs; note the knee and hip joints.  Finally there is also  a CT scan of a Fisher Price chatterbox phone, surprising number of high-strength metal parts are visualised in purple.
