When Luxury Objects goes under the Scanner

We have been feeling the radiology/ x-ray trend for awhile now, whether it was flowers, humans or even toys, this kind of photography given us a different view on everyday objects. Well, thanks to the technology of the medical imagery 3D high-definition, the French collective project Lux Inside decided to scan 13 iconic luxury objects, to help save the cause of the dying French luxury artistan industries as well as a Colombian school that teaches the know-how of goldsmithery, in Mompox.

Laurence Picot, with the help of cardiologist doctor Jean-François Paul, plastics technician Ricardo Escobar and 3D programmer Sylvain Ordureau, shot digital photographs which reveal, on black backgrounds, the qualities and hidden wheels of these exceptional objects.

All the photographs and objects will go for sale in a auction at Artcural in February 2011.
