Time-lapse video of all sorts of things being shaved down one layer at a time


Far less interesting to me than this;


This is the ‘Visible Man’, part of the Visible Human Project. He can be sliced and diced at arbitrary orientations, although this axial slicing is how he was microtomed. The ‘Visible Woman’ is similarly beautiful, and a bit better quality.

Should have filled the objects with a transparent resin to prevent them from falling apart.

This is a technique first done by Oskar Fischinger in the 1920’s. He assembled long blocks from differently coloured wax, sliced them, and photographed the cut.

Too bad they time stretched it with horrible tween frame morphing, I think it probably would have looked better without it.
