Sooooooo that’s what that looks like. The Visible Human Project was an effort to create a detailed data set of cross-sectional photographs of the human body. The cadaver used for the project was from convicted murder Joseph Paul Jernigan who donated his body for scientific research prior to his execution without exact knowledge of his body’s fate. Recently, artists Croix Gagnon and Frank Schott took images from the video above and reconstructed them in three-dimensional form as part of the 12:31 Project. The ghostly prints from that series are available here, and all proceeds benefit Amnesty International.
