Skin cell and Tissue images.

One of my aims within this project is to Photograph the skin and get deeper to the tissue and cells. This was because of personal interest and to further the work of Gary Schneider who managed to gather lip cells and other cells from around the body.

After the meeting with Sean James, the senior technician for the labs, we headed over to the Pathology Department to see Shelly. This is where the cell and tissue bank area is contained. Within this lab slides of tissues and cells are scanned in using the machine shown below.

The results produced were not quite what I was after. I was thinking of going in deeper to see more of the cells in the skin. However I am going to take what I can get and be happy with this. It is still closer than normal, and can still make out the cells and tissue areas. In one aim these images are similarly related to the work of Karl Blossfeld with the presentation of the item as an art form showing the natural forms produced within and also the scientific nature of the item, just mine is going on the wall rather than in to science books and journals.
